WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR) and David Perdue (R-GA) comment on yesterday's meeting at the White House on negotiations to fix the legal immigration system:


"President Trump brought everyone to the table this week and listened to both sides. But regrettably, it seems that not everyone is committed to negotiating in good faith. In regards to Senator Durbin's accusation, we do not recall the President saying these comments specifically but what he did call out was the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers and our national interest. We, along with the President, are committed to solving an issue many in Congress have failed to deliver on for decades."
