WASHINGTON, Nov. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Rep. Nydia M. Velazquez (D-NY) made the following comments regarding President Obama's immigration Executive Order announcement:
"The President's announcement is a much needed step in the right direction and a significant improvement over the status quo. Nonetheless, the Administration can and must do more. Even more importantly, Republicans in the House must stop blocking legislation that would comprehensively reform our immigration laws. Only action by Congress can solve this problem and provide needed relief to all the families affected by our nation's broken immigration system."
