Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) released the following statement after the Senate voted to pass a comprehensive immigration bill:
"I am encouraged by the Senate's actions on immigration reform. We need to find a real, permanent solution to our broken immigration system. That solution needs to secure the border, strengthen our economy, respect the rule of law, modernize our visa system, and address the issue of the millions of undocumented immigrants living in the shadows.
"I will continue working with my House colleagues as we seek a good faith, bipartisan approach in the House."
