August 1, 2014
Press Release

“As a second generation Greek American, I have a firsthand understanding of the importance and power of the American dream, as well as, the sensitivity and passion surrounding the issue of immigration reform. This matter becomes even more delicate when it involves minors, who must always be dealt with in a thoughtful, compassionate and fair manner,” Bilirakis said.

“However, we must uphold the rule of law and ensure its equal application. This means that we must enforce current immigration laws and focus our attention on securing our nation's borders.  These principles are the cornerstone of our approach to the current situation at the border. This bill will strengthen border security, and remove the incentives that threaten the well-being of border resources, the security of our country, the rule of law and the lives of the children that are making the journey to this country."
