Reid: Arizona Immigration Law Demonstrates The Need For Reform

Washington, D.C.Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement this evening in reaction to the signing of new immigration law today by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer:
“Today’s signing of new immigration laws by Arizona’s Governor provides another important example of why we need to fix our broken system.  While the first step in immigration reform must include border security, we cannot approach this important issue in a piecemeal fashion.  Republicans and Democrats need to work together to pass comprehensive reform that is tough on people who break the law, fair to taxpayers, respectful of civil liberties and practical to implement.”
