June 27, 2013
Press Release

Washington, DC – Moments ago, the U.S. Senate passed the greatest immigration reform bill in decades, the “Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act,”  by a vote of 68-32.  Congressman Gene Green, a long-time supporter of immigration reform, released the following statement:

“I’m glad the Senate passed this legislation. It’s not a perfect bill but it is a bipartisan compromise that would strengthen our nation’s borders, expand our economy, decrease the deficit, and provide a pathway to earned citizenship for our nation’s undocumented population.  I hope it’s brought to the House floor soon with further bipartisan support.”
