What remarks did President Biden make about Immigration in the 2023 State of the Union Address (SOTU) to Congress? So that you will know exactly what was said, I have included the portion of the transcript of his address that deals with immigration below. I have also included a link to the full transcript!
Portion of President Biden’s SOTU Address that deals with Immigration:
“And let’s also come together on immigration and make it a bipartisan issue like it was before.
We now have a record number of personnel working to secure the border, arresting 8,000 human smugglers and seizing over 23,000 pounds of fentanyl in just the last several months.
Since we launched our new border plan last month, unlawful migration from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Venezuela has come down 97%.
But America’s border problems won’t be fixed until Congress acts.
If you won’t pass my comprehensive immigration reform, at least pass my plan to provide the equipment and officers to secure the border. And a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers, those on temporary status, farm workers, and essential workers.”
