Congressman Scott supports fair and humane immigration policies that will keep our borders secure and our citizens safe, assure that those who are fleeing violence and oppression are not thrust back into danger, prevent families from being ripped apart, promote a flourishing economy, and treat all individuals who attempt to enter into our country with respect and dignity.
Congressman Scott also believes that Congress must work together to build a fair, effective and commonsense immigration system that lives up to our heritage as a nation of laws as well as a nation of immigrants. He is a co-sponsor of H.R. 15, the bipartisan Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act, which is identical to the version of comprehensive immigration reform that overwhelmingly passed the United States Senate in 2013. He has also signed a discharge petition to force a vote in the House of Representatives on this legislation. Congressman Scott stands ready to work with his colleagues on comprehensive reform of our broken immigration system in a fair and humane way.
