Congressman Ben Ray Luján of New Mexico's Third District released the following statement after a bipartisan group of Senators introduced comprehensive immigration reform.

"I commend the bipartisan Gang of 8 for their months of hard work to craft a comprehensive immigration bill that includes a pathway to citizenship. A growing coalition has formed and momentum is building toward a comprehensive solution. Congress must seize this opportunity. I look forward to carefully reviewing all of the details of this important legislation that I hope takes us a significant step closer to passing reform that is fair, tough, and practical in order to strengthen our economy, keep our country safe, and reflect the contributions immigrants make to our communities every day."
