Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio released the following statement after day one of the Senate Judiciary Committee consideration of S. 744, the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act:
“The immigration legislation was improved in some areas today. The bill will now do more to secure our borders and enforce our laws than when the day began. However we must continue working to assure the American people that we will fix our broken immigration system and never repeat today’s de facto amnesty. There’s still a long way to go, but I am encouraged that we are witnessing a transparent and deliberate process to accept input to improve this legislation. This is the way Congress should work, but too often does not."
