Jul 19, 2013 -- 3:50am

Governor Jack Markell on Thursday released a statement regarding the letter that he and thirteen other Governors sent this week to House Speaker John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi supporting immigration reform.

Gov. Markell says our country's immigration system is broken, and the economy has suffered because of it; Gov. Markell goes on to say that the House must not waste this opportunity to pass a bill that meets the key objectives of providing an earned pathway to citizenship for those living in the shadows, securing our borders and ensuring the visa system meets national priorities.
