FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: 5/9/02 Richard A. Gephardt
H-204, U.S. Capitol
Gephardt Statement on Senate Introduction of Section 245(i) Legislation

“I am very pleased that Senate Democrats have introduced legislation to extend Section 245(i) of the Immigration and Naturalization Act. “Democrats overwhelmingly support a meaningful restoration of Section 245(i) because we are committed to comprehensive immigration reform that reunites immigrant families and recognizes the hard work and invaluable contributions immigrants have made to our nation.

“While President Bush has repeatedly indicated his support for Section 245(i), he has not been able to convince Congressional Republicans to work with him in securing a more meaningful extension of the provision. We will need nothing less than the President's full support and strong leadership to pass this legislation.

“Today’s action by the Senate will give the President and Congressional Republicans a new opportunity to show that their commitment to immigrant communities extends beyond rhetoric and infomercials.”
