U.S. Congressman David Valadao issued the following statement in response to the Border Security and Immigration Reform Act, which failed by a vote of 121 to 301 on the Floor of the House of Representatives.

 “This bill began the process of repairing our broken immigration system from the ground up while also strengthening our border and providing Dreamers with a pathway to citizenship. It is incredibly disappointing the bill failed to pass in the House.” He continued, “It is clear, the only way to implement comprehensive reform legislation is if Republicans and Democrats put aside political objectives and work together to repair our broken system.”
