RUBIO: NEWLY ANNOUNCED IMMIGRATION HEARING WILL BRING GREATER SCRUTINY TO BORDER SECURITY MEASURES IN IMMIGRATION BILL

Homeland Security & Government Affairs Committee to hold hearing on May 7th
Washington, D.C. – Earlier today, the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee announced that it will hold a hearing to examine the border security measures in S. 744, the “Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act of 2013.”
After the announcement, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement:

“I am encouraged that the homeland security committee, which oversees the federal department and agencies tasked with securing our border and enforcing our immigration laws, will examine the immigration legislation.  We need more transparency and greater scrutiny of this bill, and it’s important for this committee to further help us identify ways we can secure our borders, strengthen interior enforcement and end today’s de facto amnesty of having 11 million illegal immigrants living here in violation of our laws. This kind of discussion and debate is essential for America’s security and for fixing our immigration system.”
