Senator Jim Ritchie: “A victory for the people of South Carolina”

SPARTANBURG, SC — Senator Jim Ritchie (R – Spartanburg) issued the following statement today following Senate passage of the Illegal Immigration Reform Act:

“Today’s action is a victory for the people of South Carolina. After nearly two years of passionate and oftentimes heated debate, we are on the verge of meaningful, enforceable illegal immigration reform. Our bill is the strongest in the nation. It builds on the successes of other states and ensures that all businesses in South Carolina uphold the rule of law.

I’m proud to have led this effort and appreciate the hard work of the people to keep this critical legislation at the forefront. In a process where all too often contentious reforms fail, we’ve been successful in keeping this fight alive. I look forward to continuing our efforts until this bill is signed into law.”
