Congressman Marc Veasey released the following statement, following tonight's State of the Union Address by President Barack Obama:
"Tonight, President Obama presented his vision for leading our country forward. The President outlined his plan for building a strong middle class and a strong America. He outlined priorities important to working families in my district and across the country.
I'm honored to represent the Metroplex and am working hard to ensure that the voices of those in the 33rd Congressional District are heard. I'm fighting for well-paying manufacturing jobs, funding for public schools, Medicare and Social Security and comprehensive immigration reform.
Julieta Garibay, a DREAMer and undocumented immigrant, joined me for the President's State of the Union Address. Tonight, I reaffirm my commitment to making comprehensive immigration reform a reality. I look forward to working with the President and my colleagues across the aisle to ensure that we move our country in the right direction."
