Valadao laments failure of immigration bill in House

Rep. David Valadao says the "humanitarian crisis" at the Mexico border shows why a comprehensive immigration reform bill is needed.
Congressman says Republicans and Democrats will have to "put aside political objectives" and resolve the issue.

Today, United States Congressman David G. Valadao (CA-21) issued the following statement subsequently after H.R. 6136, the Border Security and Immigration Reform Act, failed by a vote of 121 to 301 on the Floor of the House of Representatives:

Congressman Valadao stated, “This bill began the process of repairing our broken immigration system from the ground up while also strengthening our border and providing Dreamers with a pathway to citizenship. It is incredibly disappointing the bill failed to pass in the House.” He continued, “It is clear, the only way to implement comprehensive reform legislation is if Republicans and Democrats put aside political objectives and work together to repair our broken system.”

Congressman David G. Valadao represents the 21st Congressional District of California, which includes Kings County and portions of Fresno, Tulare, and Kern Counties.
