NAE Statement on Immigration Sprint

Following the vote to reopen the government with a commitment to reaching an immigration deal by February 8th, New American Economy issued the following statement:

“It’s frustrating that congressional leaders haven’t resolved this issue yet, but at least now, they have a three-week window with a clear mandate to come up with a sensible fix for Dreamers and reform a broken immigration system,” said John Feinblatt, President of New American Economy. “There are already strong, bipartisan proposals on the table that would secure our borders, keep young immigrants living and working here, and strengthen our economy in the bargain. Now is the time for Congress to act.”
