Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) released the following statement after House leadership announced the path forward for immigration reform in their chamber:

“Our republic works best when Congress solves problems through open and transparent debates, which is exactly how immigration reform will be addressed this summer.  Conservatives in both chambers of Congress agree the status quo on immigration is bad for our people, our security and our economy.  And we agree we must end today’s de facto amnesty, modernize our legal immigration system, deal with our illegal immigrant population by requiring that strict measures be achieved, and that we put in place tough border security and interior enforcement measures so that we never repeat this problem.  The American people deserve for their elected representatives to set our nation’s immigration policy, not leave it at the will of this President to decide which laws he’ll enforce and which ones he’ll create on his own by executive order.  This is the way our nation is supposed to solve problems.”
