STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – Senator Steve Gallardo released the following statement in response to tonight’s executive action on immigration:
"It's been over 500 days since U.S. Senators McCain and Flake passed their bipartisan immigration reform bill out of the Senate, but House Republicans have refused to move it forward. Enough is enough," said Senator Gallardo.
"The national crisis of our failed immigration system needs to be resolved and the President's action today is a good beginning that will help keep families together. But it doesn't get Congress off the hook. They must enact meaningful immigration reform that will benefit our community, our economy and our security. And they must do it now."
