Statement Of Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg On Senate Passage Of Comprehensive Immigration Reform Legislation

June 27, 2013

"Today we are one step closer to the biggest overhaul of our immigration laws in a generation. This bill will allow us to attract the talented and hard-working people who want to come and stay here to work and start businesses - and help our economy grow.  A strong bi-partisan group of Senators voted to pass the bill because they understand that fixing our broken immigration system is critical to our economic future.  Now, it's imperative that the House take up this issue, rise above partisanship, and send a comprehensive immigration reform bill to the President for his signature."
