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

"The president's framework is generous and humane, while also being responsible. It protects those eligible for DACA, who are here through no fault of their own. But it also will prevent us from ending up back here in five years by securing the border and putting an end to extended-family chain migration. The president's willingness to grandfather everyone in the current immigrant backlog also shows he's serious about reaching a bipartisan solution. I look forward to working with my colleagues to turn the framework into legislation that can pass both the House and the Senate with widespread support."
