Washington, DC - Congresswoman Linda Sánchez (CA-39) reacts to President Bush’s State of the Union address:

“Since he first took office, President Bush has promised to fix America’s broken immigration system. After four years, he is still delivering rhetoric, but we have yet to see the results of his plan,” said Congresswoman Linda Sánchez.

“Our immigration system is fraught with serious problems. We need comprehensive reform that secures our borders, reunites families, and benefits the American economy and we need it now,” said Congresswoman Sánchez.

“My parents came to this country like many hard-working immigrants to make a better life for their children. I ask President Bush to put his words into action by delivering a real proposal to protect our country from terrorism and help immigrants achieve the American Dream,” said Congresswoman Sánchez.

Congresswoman Linda Sánchez is the only Latina on the U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee. She sits on the subcommittee on Immigration, Border Control, and Claims.
