WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to reports of efforts by the White House and Republicans in Congress, the following is a statement from Ali Noorani, Executive Director of the National Immigration Forum:

“The news of the last few days indicates a growing willingness on the part of Republican leadership to find an immigration compromise. President Trump, Leader McConnell and Speaker Ryan are in a position to do something we haven’t seen for decades: forge a pragmatic solution to our immigration system.

“Leadership cannot pass up the opportunity to bring Americans a solution that balances the aspirations of Dreamers with the need for smart border security. Doing so is a win for Republicans, our economy and our nation as a whole.”
