Linda Sánchez Calls on Speaker Boehner to Act on Comprehensive Immigration Reform
Washington, D.C. – Rep. Linda Sánchez (CA-38), Chairwoman of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, today called on Speaker John Boehner to act on comprehensive immigration reform before he retires:
“I commend Speaker Boehner for leading this institution with dignity and I thank him for his service to our country. I am sure this was a difficult decision and I wish him well as he begins the next chapter in his life.
“Yesterday we heard from Pope Francis a message of compassion and a call for a renewal of cooperation. My hope is that in the final month of Speaker Boehner’s term in Congress we can work together to pass comprehensive immigration reform.
“As chair of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, I stand ready to work with Speaker Boehner in this spirit of cooperation. The American people are looking to us to get to work.”
