We have 11 million people in this country that need a pathway to citizenship.
We have a long way to go, some tough issues ahead of us, and I'm sure there will be some obstacles in the path ... But the good faith effort that's being put into this absolutely is encouraging to me and gives me hope.
Our timing is right... The election results are still fresh in the minds of my Republican colleagues and they don't want to go through this again.
We are dealing with the question of the 11 million people paying their taxes, having a path to legalization and, then, ultimately, to citizenship - tough issues, but we are coming together and I think we can do it.
I hope that Republicans in the House and Mr. Cantor will embrace that as part of immigration reform.
