Senator Lankford Statement on White House Immigration Principles

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – Senator James Lankford (R-OK) today made the following statement on the White House’s release of immigration reform principles:

"No one in America thinks the current immigration system works well. It hasn’t been updated in 30-plus years and the lack of action has led to a system that has incentivized illegal immigration. I appreciate the White Houses’ input on reforming our immigration system. Congress must stop kicking the can down the road, and finally address our border security and immigration problems."

On September 25, Lankford joined Senators Thom Tillis (R-NC) and Orrin Hatch (R-UT) to introduce the SUCCEED Act, a conservative alternative to the Dream Act.
