Frank Sharry, Executive Director of America’s Voice Education Fund, had the following reaction to President Obama’s immigration comments, made during the President’s first post-election press conference today:

“President Obama made it clear that comprehensive immigration reform is a top priority for early 2013.  As he predicted before the election, Latino voters punished the GOP and its nominee Mitt Romney for lurching to the right on immigration.  And as we see now, numerous Republicans – from John Boehner to Sean Hannity to John McCain to Rand Paul – are gearing up to work with Democrats to put 11 million undocumented immigrants – including DREAMers and their parents – on the road to citizenship.  This is a dramatic and welcome set of developments.  It now appears that 2013 will be the year that Congress passes real immigration reform.”
