Readout of Secretary Johnson’s Meeting with Organizations Committed to Passing Bipartisan Immigration Reform

Issued By
March 25, 2014

For Immediate Release DHS Press Office Contact: 202-282-8010

WASHINGTON-Today, Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson met with important stakeholders from across the country to discuss the need for commonsense immigration reform, and hear firsthand their comments and perspective on a wide range of immigration issues. The meeting was part of Secretary Johnson's focus on the effective and sensible enforcement of our nation's immigration laws, including the ongoing review to assess how the Department of Homeland Security can conduct enforcement more humanely within the confines of the law.

As part of that effort, Secretary Johnson has been taking a hard look at these tough issues, meeting with a range of stakeholders and employees, and assessing where we can further align our enforcement policies with our goal of sound law enforcement practice that prioritizes public safety.


During the meeting, Secretary Johnson underscored his focus on supporting the passage of commonsense immigration reform this year - which remains the only path to fixing our broken immigration system.
