Rumored Border Deal: Final Brick in the Road?
June 20, 2013
WASHINGTON, DC – This morning, news broke regarding a possible border security deal being worked on in the Senate. In light of the rumors, Ali Noorani, Executive Director at the National Immigration Forum, issued the following statement:
“Immigration reform is barreling down a bipartisan road to passage. This potential border deal, which deepens support across the board, could very well be the final brick in the road. This deal appears tough but fair and the momentum it propels is instrumental in pressuring the House to move quickly. .
“Though we haven’t seen amendment language, we understand the main tenets of the Gang of Eight bill have been protected and preserved throughout this process. The time is upon Congress to pass just, humane immigration reform.”
