Those clamoring that the U.S. House should accede to the Senate version of immigration reform, and those who believe the House should do nothing are both wrong. Congress needs to act.

Let’s get bipartisan, honest and real immigration reform legislation passed in the House, bring it back to the Senate, get to conference committee and get it passed and put in front of the president.

The immigration system is broken. Congress must seize this opportunity to finally fix it.


Norm Coleman is a former U.S. senator from Minnesota. He currently serves as chairman of the American Action Network.
