Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Today, Congressman Sires released the following statement on Senate passage of S.744, the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act:

"I am pleased that the Senate has passed bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform. While not perfect, the passage of the Senate bill is a positive first step toward reforming our broken immigration system. This bill addresses immigration reform in a responsible way and overhauls the most deficient aspects of our current system.

It is my hope that House leadership brings S.744 to the floor for immediate debate--we have waited long enough for action and must not throw away this opportunity."
