    The United States takes great pride in being a nation of immigrants. Since our founding, the men and women who have come to this country from around the world have been integral to our society, bringing skills and talents that help ensure we remain competitive in a global economy. Immigration is fundamentally a question of talent. And any attempt to improve our broken immigration system should strive to attract and retain the most talented people in the world who will help build a 21st century economy. For far too long, our immigration system has placed undue burdens on legal immigrants and kept millions of others living in the shadows of our society. I support a bipartisan approach to immigration reform that will provide a better visa system to encourage growth of a talented workforce, enhance our border security, create a path to normalizing the legal status of those here unlawfully - following compliance with various requirements such as payment of taxes and a fine - and establish a better system for companies to verify the immigration status of their employees. I was proud to join a majority of my Senate colleagues to pass a historic comprehensive immigration reform package in June 2013, as well as speak about its importance in Spanish on the Senate floor.

    “Attorney General Herring’s announcement that Virginia DREAMers will now qualify for in-state tuition at Virginia’s public community colleges and universities is welcome news for our Commonwealth. Access to quality, affordable higher education will provide an additional path to help them reach their full potential and ultimately help grow Virginia’s economy as productive members of the state’s workforce and their communities. These are young people in whom we have already invested through public elementary and secondary education and who deserve the opportunity to fully give back to the only country they have ever called home.” View Source 04/29/14
