Entry Title Date
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 348, Responsibly And Professionally Invigorating Development Act Of 2015; Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 758, Lawsuit Abuse Reduction Act Of 2015; And… September 17, 2015
Jared Polis, D-CO
"I also hope that, under martial law, they will bring forward a bill to replace our broken immigration system with a humane system, with a pathway to citizenship that replaces the chaos we have, with the rule of law, border security, and a pathway to normalization and citizenship for hard-working, aspiring Americans who are already here."
Immigration Reform September 16, 2015
Patrick Leahy, D-VT
"We must put an end to this destructive anti-immigrant rhetoric and find a way back to the constructive, bipartisan approach to reforming our immigration system. The Senate Judiciary Committee played a critical role in that effort and I am proud of the productive, respectful debates that marked our consideration of comprehensive immigration reform in 2013. Both Democrats and Republicans praised the process as fair and thorough. Bipartisanship was a priority, and of the 136 amendments we adopted in committee, all but 3 passed on a bipartisan basis. As a result of that remarkable effort, the Senate passed comprehensive immigration reform with overwhelming support. If House Republican leaders had simply brought that bill up for a vote, it would have passed and been the law of the land. We would have taken an enormous step forward as a country to fix our broken immigration system."
Providing For Consideration Of H.R. 3009, Enforce The Law For Sanctuary Cities Act July 23, 2015
Jared Polis, D-CO
"It is time for this body to fix our broken immigration system to keep Americans safe. How many other victims like Kathryn Steinle need to make the ultimate sacrifice—or the countless other Americans who are victims of other kinds of crime—at the hands of immigrant felons? It will be until this body chooses to fix our broken immigration system and restore the rule of law."
Sanctuary Cities July 23, 2015
Tony Cardenas, D-CA
"The safety of our families should not be a pawn to please Donald Trump. Republicans should work to fix our broken immigration system that will make our neighborhoods safer and supercharge our economy."
Enforce The Law For Sanctuary Cities Act July 23, 2015
Chris Van Hollen, D-MD
"Instead of pushing these failed policies, we need to come together and pass bipartisan legislation to address our broken immigration system. I urge my colleagues to oppose this bill."
