Sen. Mark Warner on Obama immigration announcement

mark-warnerU.S. Sen. Mark Warner released the following statement in support of the President’s immigration announcement:

“The Senate passed a comprehensive bipartisan reform package more than 18 months ago, and so far the House of Representatives has failed to act.  Congress must step-up to fix our broken immigration system. That means securing our borders, reforming our visa programs, and implementing practical solutions for undocumented immigrants who currently live in the U.S.

The President’s action mirrors many of the provisions in the bipartisan Senate legislation. While I understand his decision to take executive action, and while similar steps have been taken by every President in the past 60 years, executive action is not permanent. That’s why Congress needs to act legislatively to provide the long-term certainty that our families, communities and country deserve.”
