Archbishop Jose H. Gomez, archbishop of Los Angeles, CA, and chairman of the USCCB Committee on Migration, today commended the U.S. Senate for passage of comprehensive immigration reform legislation. The U.S. Senate passed S. 744, the Border Security, Economic Competitiveness, and
Immigration Modernization Act of 2013, by a vote of 68-32.
He urged the House of Representatives to immediately consider bi-partisan comprehensive immigration reform.
“I commend the U.S. Senate on the vote and for the bi-partisan cooperation displayed during the legislative process,” Archbishop Gomez said. “I urge the House of Representatives to follow the U.S. Senate’s lead and pass a comprehensive reform bill as soon as possible,” he added.
