The Senate passed its version of immigration reform- 68-32. Both Mississippi Senators voted no.
It is unclear how the House will move forward, but we should not repeat the same mistakes of the past. That means enforcing the laws already on the books, securing our borders, and improving interior enforcement. Any immigration reform legislation must be good for economic growth, protect hardworking taxpayers, support our workforce, and not reward those who have broken our laws over those who have followed the rules and came to this country the right way. I oppose the Senate immigration reform bill because it fails to meet these criteria.
