Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Rubio, Rep. Joe Garcia y Rep. Diaz-Balart marcando en el tema migratorio

Enviado por en enero 28, 2013 – 22:39 pm

SENADOR TED CRUZ: “I appreciate the good work that senators in both parties have put into trying to fix our broken immigration system. There are some good elements in this proposal, especially increasing the resources and manpower to secure our border and also improving and streamlining legal immigration. However, I have deep concerns with the proposed path to citizenship. To allow those who came here illegally to be placed on such a path is both inconsistent with rule of law and profoundly unfair to the millions of legal immigrants who waited years, if not decades, to come to America legally.” (WEB del Senador Ted Cruz)

SENADOR MARCO RUBIO: Rubio was asked by Lou Dobbs this evening to respond to Cruz. His response below: “I’ve long shared the same concern and that’s why we’ve outlined it the way we have. What we do here for people that are undocumented is they have to come forward, undergo a background check, they have to pay fines and back taxes and so forth and then all they get is a temporary status basically, think of it as a probationary status, it allows them to stay in the country and work but they don’t qualify for any federal benefits, they can’t turn that into citizenship or anything else and they’re going to have to be in that status for a significant period of time.” (MAS… en TAMPA BAY TIMES)

Congresista JOE GARCIA: “For years we have pushed for a solution to our ineffective and unjust immigration system and I believe 2013 will be the year this goal becomes a reality.  I wholeheartedly welcome Senator Rubio’s and others evolution on this important issue and welcome with them with open arms to  join our cause.” (MAS… en NAKED POLITICS)

Congresista MARIO DIAZ-BALART: “Although we have not seen the legislation text, the principles released today are compatible with the discussions in the House. The prospect of true immigration reform can only happen with bipartisan support in both chambers of Congress, and today’s news is a step in that direction. I commend the dedicated efforts of the group. We look forward to working with the Senate and President Obama to find a real, permanent solution.” (MAS… en WEB del Rep. Diaz-Balart)
