With more than 70% of Latino voters helping to reelect President Obama on Tuesday, leaders on both sides of the aisle are now calling for immigration reform. Below are quotes from President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH).
President Obama (D)
• “And in the coming weeks and months, I am looking forward to reaching out and working with leaders of both parties to meet the challenges we can only solve together. Reducing our deficit.
Reforming our tax code. Fixing our immigration system.”
