"Our immigration system is broken, and in need of reform. But passing the right reform is more important than simply getting something passed, and I am not able to support the legislation without stronger enforcement in place to ensure it will be a lasting, workable solution. We need to be sure that we're not moving ahead with legal status for people who are here without putting enforcement in place, and that's something I'll be working towards on the floor of the Senate. I look forward to a vigorous debate and to efforts to strengthen the legislation."
