Support Immigration Reform:

Americans By Choice Applauds Gang of 8 Immigration Plan

Americans By Choice Applauds Gang of 8 Immigration Plan
Citizenship and Legal Status Can Be Treated As Separate Issues

Fergus Cullen, founder of Americans By Choice, a new center-right organization supporting immigration reform, issues the following statement in response to today’s immigration reform plan outlined by the Senate’s Gang of Eight:

“We applaud the basic outline released by the Gang of Eight today. Citizenship and legal status for the undocumented can be treated as separate issues, and doing so is an important step toward breaking the logjam and getting real immigration reform passed. We especially salute the four Republican Senators – John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio, and Jeff Flake – for showing political courage by taking on this issue. May their leadership serve as an example to other Republicans as members of good will in both parties work toward an immigration reform plan that modernizes and expands our visa system, creates legal channels for future immigrants, and recognizes the reality that millions of undocumented people live among us.”
