Chairman Israel’s Statement on the Passage of the Senate’s Immigration Reform Bill

DCCC Chairman Steve Israel released the following statement after the Senate passed its immigration reform bill:

“Today's bipartisan Senate vote is the moment of truth for House Republicans. They can join the bipartisan Senate and make progress on an immigration compromise, or they can continue to choose partisan ideology and extremism. After they lost the 2012 Presidential election, Republicans themselves acknowledged that they are out of touch with Latino voters and the changing American electorate. Now we will see whether they stick a knife in their own 2012 autopsy by killing immigration reform.”
