Congressman Bob Goodlatte was on Face The Nation Sunday morning discussing some important issues including immigration reform.
Congressman Goodlatte says we need news law of enforcement to crack down on illegal immigration. This includes employment verifications. Congressman Goodlatte does say the Senate bill has flaws because it gives legal status then deals with enforcement.
We showed folks in the valley the latest statements. Rick Castaneda has been following the issue for a while.
"It was a little surprising to hear Congressman Goodlatte's statements and to read what he had said because I remember specifically back in 2010 he wasn't saying anything near this at all and he was kind of speaking against a lot of things that he's speaking for now. So it's a real change from the way he stood in the past on immigration. So on the one hand that's a little refreshing and on the other hand a little confusing," says Castaneda.
Castaneda says at least all parties are agreeing that reform needs to happen.
