Mayor Swearengin Issues Statement on President Obama’s Immigration Reform Remarks

FRESNO – Mayor Ashley Swearengin today issued the following statement on President Obama’s immigration reform remarks:

"Today, the President put a spotlight on the critical issue of immigration reform. In the Fresno Region, we experience firsthand the impacts that a broken immigration system has on our regional economy. Our farmers suffer when they don't have a reliable workforce, and when our farmers suffer, we feel it in the City of Fresno. We are grateful the President and our nation's leaders are taking up this issue and are committed to helping find solutions to this complicated issue."

Mayor Swearengin was invited by the White House to attend President Obama’s announcement in Las Vegas.
