Today, after President Barack Obama delivered remarks outlining his principles for immigration reform, Congressman Xavier Becerra (CA-34), Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, released the following statement:
"In the twenty years that I've served in the U.S. House of Representatives, the landscape for reforming our long-broken immigration system has never been as promising as it is today. President Obama's principles for immigration reform complement the work that is being done in Congress.
"As the details of a reform package become clearer over the next weeks, the one necessity is that it must be done. Fixing our broken immigration system is imperative for our country, our economy, and most importantly our families. I look forward to working with President Obama, the U.S. Senate, and my colleagues in the House of Representatives to get the job done on behalf of the American people."
