The following is a statement from America’s Voice Executive Director Frank Sharry reacting to the inclusion of immigration reform in the White House BBB framework released today.
This is another big step toward fulfilling promises, transforming lives and investing in the future of America.
It’s been 35 years since we enacted major immigration legislation. The public, the President, and every Democrat in Congress support modernization of our immigration system. This is a good first step that recognizes the essential role of immigrants to our economy, society and community. Now Democrats need to take the next step and deliver for the country and the millions of immigrant families who deliver for America.
