Today, in response to the Senate’s passage of bipartisan immigration reform, Florida Democratic Party Chair Allison Tant released the following statement:
“Today, the United States Senate took a major step forward for comprehensive, commonsense immigration reform. This bipartisan bill will make great strides in fixing our broken immigration system. Its passage in the Senate by an overwhelming majority is a victory for the American Dream, and I thank President Obama for his strong leadership in building bipartisan support for this vital issue.
“Our country will continue to be the destination for those seeking to make a better life for themselves. Immigrants, Dreamers, and all Americans across this country should celebrate this historic achievement. I encourage every single one of Florida’s Congressmen and Congresswomen to support the Senate’s bill and fix our immigration system.”
