Senator Lisa Murkowski has been chosen along with four other Republicans to be a group of co-sponsors of a "bipartisan" immigration proposal.
“I am proud to be a part of this bipartisan solution for the Dreamers,” said Senator Murkowski. “We should not punish children for the actions of their parents. Those who were brought to this country by their parents, were raised here, educated here, lived here, and dreamed here, should be welcomed to stay here. They should have the right to work and a path to citizenship. Fulfilling that dream renews our American Dream. I have consistently cosponsored legislation to provide just that, and I am heartened to see so many diverse voices supporting a legislative solution for the Dreamers.”
Murkowski was named Wednesday, along with Senators Susan Collins (R-Maine), Lamar Alexander (R-Tennessee) and Mike Rounds (R-South Dakota). They join Republican Senators Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina), Jeff Flake (R-Arizona) and Cory Gardner (R-Colorado).
