Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said in a statement Monday he supports the deal reached by a bipartisan group of senators to reform immigration policy:
“Fixing our broken immigration system is an urgent priority, and I fully support the efforts of the bipartisan group ofsenators seeking to solve this issue. We need a comprehensive solution that includes a tough but fair path to citizenship for the estimated eleven million individuals in our country who are undocumented, and a plan to secure our borders. This framework meets those criteria, and I am very encouraged to see this group making progress and finding common ground. The true test of our leadership will be passing common-sense legislation, and nothing short of success will be acceptable.
“President Obama has made immigration reform a top priority for his administration, and I thank him for his leadership. With bipartisan support building in both houses of Congress and a President eager to solve this problem, we should be able to get this done in the months ahead. The American people want a solution, our economy requires a solution, and families across America are praying for a solution. Now is the time to act.”
