Washington, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on the Trump administration's just-released immigration principles:

"The principles the president has put out show he understands what's broken in our immigration system and what's holding down wages for American workers. I'm especially glad to see him call for ending chain migration and moving to a skills-based immigration system. These kinds of reforms are long overdue. I'm encouraged to see the president's continued leadership on this issue and I stand ready to work with him and my colleagues to build an immigration system that supports the American worker and boosts our economy."
