(Washington) – Today, Congressman John B. Larson applauded the Senate on their efforts to pass the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act.

"Today, the Senate worked together to address our broken immigration system. It now falls on the House to take the next step towards fixing a system that has for too long eluded comprehensive reform. It is my hope that Members continue today's spirit of bipartisanship, roll up their sleeves and get to work on this vital legislation.

"I also want to applaud Senators Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy for their hard work on a bill that will help Connecticut and the nation."
