Diaz-Balart: I’m Committed and Ready to Work with President Trump, Congressional Colleagues on Immigration Reform
WASHINGTON – Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) released the following statement regarding President Trump’s recent remarks on immigration reform.
“I am very encouraged by President Trump’s recent comments on immigration reform. It is no secret our country has a broken immigration system. I have said many times that we must come together from both sides of the aisle to find a commonsense solution on immigration reform. It is extremely disappointing that many from both the left and right extremes are quick to criticize the President’s willingness to work with Congress to fix our immigration system. This kind of political gimmickry is unnecessary and unhelpful to a bipartisan, legislative solution. I continue to believe this legislation must strengthen our borders, adhere to the rule of law, offer a permanent and humane solution to those living in the shadows, bolster our economy, and modernize our antiquated visa system. I remain committed and ready to work with the White House and congressional colleagues from both sides of the aisle.”
