NCHL STATEMENT ON IMMIGRATION DEBATES IN CONGRESS
ATLANTA – Today, State Representative David Casas (GA), chairman of the National Conference of Hispanic Legislators (NCHL), issued the following statement regarding the Senate debate about immigration.
“The senate’s reconsideration of immigration reform is a positive step towards addressing one of the most critical issues facing our nation today. As the debate unfolds, we must remember that our number one priority is to secure our border. The recent thwarted plot on our soldiers at Fort Dix is evidence that we still live in very dangerous times. It is in the best interest of the Hispanic community and of our country as a whole, to secure the homeland. Once our federal government secures the border, we can address the remaining challenges.”
