STATEMENT FROM GOVERNOR MARTIN O’MALLEY ON IMMIGRATION

REFORM

 

ANNAPOLIS, MD (July 17, 2013) – Governor Martin O’Malley today released the following statement urging the U.S. House of Representatives to pass comprehensive, common sense immigration reform: 

“I join with my fellow governors across the country in urging the U.S. House of Representatives to pass the common sense immigration legislation recently approved by the Senate.  This is the right thing to do for our national security, the well-being of our workforce, and also for job creation and the U.S. economy.  

“If we want better results we have to make better choices. 

“In Maryland, we passed the DREAM Act - and we became the first State to successfully defend it at the ballot box - because in an Innovation Economy, we create more jobs when we expand opportunity.”
