Congressman Smith Statement on Proposed Immigration Reform FrameworkJanuary 29, 2013

House Armed Services Committee Ranking Member Adam Smith (WA-09) issued the following statement on the President’s support of immigration reform and a bipartisan framework in Congress: 

“Addressing our immigration system in a comprehensive way is incredibly important and long overdue. The announcement of a framework Monday morning by the bipartisan group of Senators and President Obama’s vocal support of similar principles today are critical steps forward. While there are still many details to be figured out and significant work to be done, I’m encouraged by this initial action and look forward to working with my colleagues in the House and Senate to make immigration reform a reality this Congress.”
