Gowdy Immigration Bill Would Be a Burden

June 18, 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. — As the House Judiciary Committee holds a hearing this morning on H.R. 2278, the “Strengthen and Fortify Enforcement (SAFE) Act,” Ali Noorani, Executive Director at the National Immigration Forum, released the following statement.

“We need broad immigration reform that makes our communities safer. Extreme bills that reinforce our broken immigration system are simply a waste of valuable time and resources.

“Immigration reform can and must bring honor to the rule of law. Far-reaching reform will require the federal government to accept its responsibility for immigration enforcement, not abdicate it. And it will bring hardworking aspiring Americans out of the shadows so law enforcement can root out true criminals and keep all of us safe.”
