(Hartford) – Today Congressman John B. Larson released the following statement after President Barack Obama presented his immigration reform proposal:
"Our nation's immigration system is long overdue for the type of comprehensive reform our President presented today. I am also encouraged by the bipartisan spirit of yesterday's Senate proposal and hope that both parties will continue to work together on this important issue. As always, the devil is in the details, and while this remains a broad discussion that requires national attention, I am pleased to see the President set the right tone by laying out a framework for a path forward. I look forward to working with members in the coming months to review these proposals and develop the best possible solutions to fix our broken immigration system and secure our borders."
