Larson Calls For Comprehensive Immigration Reform
Washington DC – Today, Congressman John B. Larson (CT-01) released the following statement after the House Republicans failed to pass another partisan immigration bill and voted against a clean alternative to end family separations offered by House Democrats.
“What the American people want is comprehensive immigration reform. We should be focusing on border security at the same time as providing humanity along our borders. Today, House Republicans not only voted against a clean alternative to permanently end family separations of migrant families, but their own partisan immigration measure pushed by their leadership. In order to provide a clear path forward for comprehensive immigration reform, I urge my colleagues to put clean bills on the floor that provide a path for DREAMers, helps our DACA recipients, and puts our country back on the moral compass it was once on,” said Larson.
