A new Fox News poll finds that 65% – including 56% of Republicans – prefer immigration reform containing a path to citizenship over “no Congressional action at all.” http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/08/15/fox-news-poll-voters-to-congress-do-something-anything-on-immigration/ I hope that Speaker Boehner and House Republican Leadership will listen to the majority of voters in their own party and fix our broken immigration system. The Senate has already passed bipartisan immigration reform. When will the Speaker bring this critical legislation to a vote?

Thanks to the National Down Syndrome Society for the "super" portrait! I'm proud to be an advocate for the #DownSyndrome community, and a co-sponsor of the Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act, which would allow disabled individuals to set up tax-exempt accounts to pay for expenses relating to education, housing, employment, health, transportation, and other personal concerns. I look forward to joining my House colleagues to #passtheABLEact.
