Press Release
WASHINGTON, D.C.— U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan (WI-02) tonight issued the following statement on the President’s executive actions to protect nearly 5 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States:
“I am proud the President has followed through on his promise to address our nation’s broken immigration system,” said Rep. Mark Pocan. “However, I would have preferred Congress debate and pass the Senate’s bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform bill.“ 
“The President is using his constitutional authority to make much needed progress on this important issue while House Republicans continue to allow our broken immigration system to fester,” Rep. Pocan said. “Congress still needs to act to permanently fix our nation’s immigration laws. Speaker Boehner and Congressional Republicans must come to the negotiation table to reach a comprehensive and long-lasting solution.“
