Today, Congresswoman Linda Sánchez (CA-39) joined members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus to announce their renewed commitment to work toward comprehensive immigration reform. During today's press conference, the CHC released a document outlining its principles of reform called "One Nation: Principles on Immigration Reform and Our Commitment to the American Dream."
"Our country was founded on the hard work of immigrants from around the world. It is time we get serious about adopting an immigration policy that builds on our country's great tradition of diversity and reflects on our values of equality and fairness," said Congresswoman Sánchez. "We must pass comprehensive immigration reform that fixes our immigration system, deals humanely with aspiring citizens in our country, and increases the security of our borders. As member of the House Judiciary Committee and Congressional Hispanic Caucus, I remain committed to working with my colleagues to advance legislation that will truly reform this country's broken immigration system and give deserving people a chance to become equal members of society."
Congresswoman Sánchez was recently elected to serve as the Congressional Hispanic Caucus' Second Vice-Chair for the 113th Congress.
