Statement from Governor Quinn on President Barack Obama’s Plan for Immigration Reform

CHICAGO – January 29, 2013. Governor Pat Quinn today welcomed the call by President Barack Obama to take immediate action on immigration reform in America:

“Immigration reform in our nation is long overdue, and I applaud President Obama for his comprehensive plan to fix our broken immigration system. This plan will strengthen border security while providing a path to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Most importantly, it will keep families together.

“I am proud that Illinois is leading the nation when it comes to welcoming all people. Just this week, I signed a bill to improve traffic safety and ensure that undocumented immigrants in Illinois will be able to be properly licensed to drive. I also fought for the Illinois Dream Act, a historic law that is opening up education opportunities that will help Illinois children pursue their dreams.

“We must always ensure that everybody is in and nobody is left out.”
