Statement from ACU Chairman Al Cardenas on Immigration Legislation
 
“It seems that a growing number of Democrats & Republicans in Congress have found common ground on agreed-upon principles for immigration reform.
 
Congratulations to both sides of the aisle in forging a responsible framework today. Difficult days lay ahead in working out specifics on the legislation itself, but the Senate is off to a good start and I encourage the House to follow suit.
 
As a result of the White House Executive Orders last year, we now have a defacto amnesty status which can only be fixed through legislation. We will soon know whether President Obama is more interested in finding solutions to our nation’s immigration challenges or yet another opportunity for political grand standing and “gotcha” politics. The conservative movement stands ready to support reasonable immigration reform.
 
But, the President’s speech tomorrow will hopefully address more than just fixing our immigration challenges. It is my hope that he is ready to responsibly compromise on solutions to our nation’s many crises. The ball is now in President Obama’s court.”
