House Republican Backs Dem Immigration Bill

Wednesday, 30 Oct 2013 05:01 PM

Republican Rep. David Valadao is backing a comprehensive House Democratic bill to overhaul the nation's immigration system.

The California congressman said in a statement Wednesday that he is joining with like-minded Republicans to show to the House GOP leadership that it should deal with immigration legislation before the end of the year.

Valadao is the third Republican to back a Democratic bill that would provide a path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants living here illegally and tighten border security. California Rep. Jeff Denham and Florida Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen have announced their support for the bill.

Most Republicans have shown little interest in a comprehensive bill, favoring a piecemeal approach to addressing the issue.
