Congressman Crowley On Immigration Reform

On Friday, Congressman Joe Crowley released the statement below marking the one-year anniversary of the Senate passage of bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform, with no sign of similar action from Republican leadership in the House of Representatives:

“It’s been 365 days since the Senate passed bipartisan legislation to fix our nation’s broken immigration system, yet all we see is excuse after excuse from House Republicans on their failure to act.

“While Republicans continue to make excuses, families across the country are suffering. The American people want it, the economy needs it, basic human decency demands it, and the Senate passed it. What else are House Republicans waiting for?

“Enough with the excuses. It’s time for a vote.”
