Congresswoman Kat Cammack (FL-03) Issues Statement On President Biden's New Immigration Proposal

February 19, 2021

GAINESVILLE, FL – Today, Congresswoman Kat Cammack (R-FL-03) issued the following statement on the new immigration proposal released yesterday.

"President Biden’s new immigration proposal falls far short of the mark. Instead of addressing the true challenges that our nation faces on the southwest border, this administration has decided to kowtow to the Liberal Left and their open-borders agenda. During his inauguration, President Biden expressed his willingness to work across the aisle, but his recent executive actions and this new immigration plan have proven otherwise. This administration is clearly more intent on opening our borders for a new surge of migrants than closing the loopholes in our immigration system. Simply put, this will result in blanket amnesty that puts illegal aliens at the front of the line for citizenship.

"President Trump made it a priority to strengthen our borders and protect our citizens. That is the first and most important charge of our government. Democrats should use this starting point to move forward on immigration, not throw it away to continue to spite the former president. Good policy should not be a partisan issue. We need to work together to get this right. It’s well past time to get serious about our border security; it’s not just the safety of our citizens at stake, but that of our nation. As a member of the Homeland Security Committee, I vow to work with my colleagues to advocate for commonsense solutions and the steady progress on our bipartisan border wall system."
