WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-AL) today released the following statement in response to the Senate passage of an omnibus immigration bill.
“What the Senate passed today is deeply flawed,” Rep. Roby said. “An immigration reform bill that doesn’t truly secure the border isn’t immigration reform at all.
“I’m pleased that the House won’t take up this Senate monstrosity, but rather start fresh on true immigration reform and go through regular order. That means any immigration bills will have to withstand the rigorous committee process, transparent for the American people to see. And, if legislation can’t stand up to that scrutiny, it won’t and shouldn’t become law.
“Though I don’t serve on the Judiciary Committee, my staff and I are closely monitoring any developments relating to immigration. There’s no question our immigration system is broken and in need of reform, but it matters how we do it. I’m against offering amnesty for illegal immigrants. I will oppose any attempt at reform that won’t truly secure the border. And, I will fight to ensure American taxpayers aren’t forced to pay for the addition of millions illegal immigrants to the rolls of our assistance programs.
“I applaud Senator Sessions for his steadfast defense for the rule of law throughout this process. Because of his work, Americans are more aware of the onerous parts of this bill.”
