Sen. Chiesa Will Vote Yes On Immigration Reform

Sen. Jeff Chiesa (R-NJ) said that he will vote yes on comprehensive immigration reform, slated to come to a vote on final passage Thursday.

“As a former Federal prosecutor and Attorney General for the State of New Jersey, I have looked carefully at this debate through the lens of public safety and law enforcement,” Chiesa said in a statement. “This bill strengthens border security, E-verify and better identifies visa overstays through an improved entry/exit system. I will vote for this immigration bill because I believe it is the right thing to do.”
