Statement from Rep. Gallego on the Administration’s immigration policy reform



STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – Today Rep. Ruben Gallego, D-Phoenix (District 16), released the following statement on the Administration’s immigration policy reform.

“I applaud the recent decision to lift the shadow of deportation from some of the young people who came here as children. These young people are committed to their own education and to serving our country. They should not be forced to leave because of a decision their parents made. This reform makes our nation’s immigration policy more fair and more efficient. While this is not a permanent fix, only Congress can provide that, it is the right thing to do.”
