Washington, DC-Rep. Jim Costa released the following statement after joining members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus for a meeting with President Obama and Vice President Biden.

“There are real challenges to passing tough but fair legislation that will fix our broken immigration system, but today was a positive step in that process,” said Costa. “The President and Vice President were frank about the obstacles ahead, but they also expressed a great willingness to work in good faith with both sides of the aisle to get this finished. I hope that Republican Leadership will pull up a chair and take them up on that offer.

“For the sake of our economy, our Valley’s future, and the 11 million still living in the shadows, we must forge a bipartisan path forward. The price of inaction is too high.”
