Press Release

WASHINGTON D.C. –Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) released the following statement regarding the recent remarks Speaker Boehner made stating that House leadership will not conference with the Senate immigration bill:

“I remain steadfast in the fact that the House needs to take up immigration reform. I urge Speaker Boehner to remain open to any options that allow us to solve this crucial issue. It has been said time and time again that our immigration system is broken, and we must come together to find a sensible solution to fix it. I continue to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle on a bill that secures our border, respects the rule of law, strengthens our economy, modernizes the visa system, and addresses the millions of undocumented immigrants in a way that is both reasonable and humane.”
