Burgess Statement on Senate Immigration Reform Proposal

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (Texas-26) released the following statement regarding the Senate's immigration reform proposal:

"While the Senate proposal includes several provisions aimed at improving the enforcement of our current immigration laws, it fails to ensure the integrity of the legal immigration process. We need to ensure that our borders are secure and employers are hiring those who are legal to work in America. We have programs in place, such as E-verify, that make employment verification easy and efficient. I am adamant about enforcement, especially when employers go outside the law and hire those who are not here legally. Rewarding those who enter this country illegally is not only reckless, but blocks opportunities for the 12 million American citizens who are currently unemployed and costs taxpayers more money."
