Florida Congressman Joe Garcia named to House Judiciary subcommittee on Immigration

Congressman Joe Garcia has been named to the House Judiciary subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security. The South Florida Democrat was elected in November to represent a district that stretches from west Miami-Dade to key West. The committee is responsible for drafting immigration legislation in the United States House of Representatives.

“As a member of the Immigration Subcommittee, I will help lead the effort to ensure that we achieve comprehensive immigration reform that will strengthen our economy by providing 11 million people with a pathway to citizenship," Congressman Joe Garcia said in a statement. "The time has come to resolve this issue and afford citizenship to those immigrants who are Americans in every other way and want to work to move our country forward.”
