Gang of 8 Members Comment on the Anniversary of Senate Immigration Reform Bill Intro

April 16, 2014

Washington, DC – On the one-year anniversary of the introduction of S.744, The Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act of 2013, Senators Charles Schumer (D-NY), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Robert Menendez (D-NJ), and Michael Bennet (D-CO), all members of the Senate’s “Gang of 8,” issued the following statement:

“The success of the Gang of 8 proved that compromise, cooperation, and bipartisanship are not only possible, but also necessary to get the job done,” said the Senators. “We’re forever proud and grateful to have been part of the cohort that hammered out a strong bipartisan immigration reform effort in the Senate. Despite being so close to permanently fixing our broken system once and for all, the path forward continues to be inexcusably stalled in the House of Representatives. It is our sincere hope that House Republicans move away from extremes so that commonsense immigration reform can be finally pushed over the finish line.”
