State Republican Lawmakers Call On Republican Congressional Delegation To Support Immigration Reform

Posted on Thursday, September 12, 2013 2:28pm

A coalition of Republican state lawmakers, including one from Ventura County, is calling on the state’s Republican congressional delegation to support immigration reform.

The legislators, along with a half dozen state agricultural leaders, held a news conference in Sacramento calling for California’s congressional members to push for an immigration vote.

Republican Assemblyman Jeff Gorrell of Camarillo says there is a growing solidarity in his party to support reform efforts, which would include strengthening borders, but at the same time providing undocumented workers in the U.S. with a path to earn citizenship.

Gorrell says it’s time to put his issue behind us as a state, and a nation once and for all.
