WASHINGTON, June 13, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Former Governors Haley Barbour and Ed Rendell and former Secretaries Henry Cisneros and Condoleezza Rice, co-chairs of the Bipartisan Policy Center's Immigration Task Force, released the following statement today:

"The events of this week represent a challenge for those of us who believe our immigration system is broken and needs to be reformed. Our immigration system was broken last week, is broken today and will remain broken until we put forth sensible and achievable solutions to fix this pressing national problem. Speaker Boehner has said that he wants to move immigration reform, and we look forward to working with him and the new leadership team in the House to find pathways to make that happen."
