Rep. Foster Calls For Quick Action on Comprehensive Immigration Reform

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Bill Foster (IL-11) released the following statement on the immigration proposal announced today by a bipartisan group of senators.

"Today's proposal is an important first step towards enacting desperately needed reforms to our broken immigration system. This issue has been pushed aside for too long -- it's time for Congress to take quick action and pass a comprehensive package that includes providing law enforcement authorities the tools they need to secure our borders, a path to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants already in the country, and a more secure and efficient system for legal immigration.

"Voters sent a clear message last November that it's time to end the partisan political posturing and start working across the aisle. I'm encouraged to see that a group of senators received that message and am hopeful that my colleagues in the House will follow suit.

"I am particularly pleased to see a bipartisan consensus forming around Senator Durbin's leadership on this issue, and I look forward to working with Congressman Gutierrez to produce a similar breakthrough on the House side."
