On Wednesday, House Republicans held a conference wide meeting to discuss the topic of immigration reform. Congressman Weber (R-Friendswood) made the following statement:
"While I appreciate House Leadership meeting with the House Republican Conference to discuss immigration reform, I do not believe a two-hour meeting is sufficient. I am calling for a weekend conference to allow us an opportunity to exhaustively discuss the matter.
Immigration reform is just as complex as the President's health care law, and we need to make sure that we get this right. We cannot afford a repeat of the 1986 amnesty bill. We have to remember, this is not a race. The American people deserve a secure border, and for their elected officials to do their job correctly. I am committed to spending all the time and energy necessary to get this right on behalf of law-abiding Americans"
