Passage of House Immigration Bill Hands Senate Opportunity to Continue Work On Immigration

(Arlington, VA) –   Today, the House of Representatives passed two immigration-related bills focused on providing a permanent solution to Dreamer and Temporary Protective Status Holders, as well as those working the Agriculture industry.  The separate bills are the Dream and Promise Act and the Farm Workforce Modernization Act.

Daniel Garza, President of The LIBRE Initiative, and Tim Phillips, President of Americans in Prosperity released the following statement: 

“ Our nation is in crucial need for reforms that address the status quo, much of which has been a direct result of Congress’ inability over the past 30 years to modernize our outdated immigration system – including a permanent solution for Dreamers, TPS Holders, and those working in the Agriculture industry.

This is why we urge Senate leaders and members, from both parties, to work together on finding common ground and move forward where there is consensus on sensible solutions.”
