LIBRE Initiative and Hispanic Leadership Network Jointly Applaud House Republican Immigration Principles
(Washington, D.C.) – Two conservative Hispanic grassroots and advocacy organizations, the LIBRE Initiative (LIBRE) and the Hispanic Leadership Network (HLN), commended House Republicans today for releasing principles to fix our broken immigration system:
"Speaker Boehner and House Republicans should be applauded for taking a significant step forward to fixing our broken immigration system. These principles would give workers and employers certainty, provide relief to the many young people here without documentation through no fault of their own, and allow millions to come out of the shadows, be open members of society and not constantly worry about being deported. That said, important details remain to be worked out, and we look forward to being part of the process to address concerns of those impacted by the law.
The House is showing its willingness to be flexible in order to achieve a compromise and enact much-needed reform of our broken immigration system. The President too, needs to be willing to compromise – and work with the other side to find a genuine immigration solution – and not kill reform by taking a 'my-way-or-the-highway' approach."
