As the daughter and granddaughter of immigrants, I am so pleased that
the Senate today passed comprehensive immigration reform that includes
a path to citizenship.
California will benefit from this
bill when 2.8 million hard-working immigrants � including DREAMers �
are able to come out of the shadows and fully contribute to the state
and the country they love. This bill will create 25,000 new jobs
in California each year as these workers open bank accounts, buy
homes, start businesses, and enhance our communities.
country is ready and waiting for reform. I urge House Republicans
not to block progress on legislation that will increase our Gross
Domestic Product, reduce the federal deficit, and create new opportunities
that will benefit our nation.
America has always been a
nation of immigrants and we have proven that opening our hearts and
welcoming immigrants is what helps to make us the greatest country in the
