Representative Garcia today released the following statement after the U.S. Senate voted to pass comprehensive immigration reform by a vote of 68-32:
"Today, our country took a big step towards achieving commonsense, comprehensive immigration reform. I applaud the Senate for acting in a strongly bipartisan manner to help fix our broken immigration system," Garcia said.
"As a member of the House Judiciary Committee, I look forward to working with my colleagues on a bipartisan basis to pass comprehensive immigration reform that secures our borders, grows our economy and creates a fair pathway to citizenship for the millions of hard-working immigrants who are American in every way except on paper." Garcia said.
