Rep. Schiff Statement on President's State of the Union Address

Washington, D.C. – Today, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) released the following statement after the President concluded his State of the Union Address before Congress:

"Tonight, the President challenged Congress to join him in an effort to reinvigorate the American Dream by expanding opportunity and prosperity for all our citizens. While he took action today raising the minimum wage to over $10 for federal contractors, it's up to Congress to raise it for the millions of other workers, and ensure that everyone has the ability to raise a family and join the middle class.

"I was pleased that the President challenged Congress to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill that will bring millions out of the shadows, allow DREAMers to earn citizenship, and provide a legal path forward for undocumented immigrants in the country.

"Finally, the President deserves a lot of credit – he's ended the war in Iraq, bringing to an end to the war in Afghanistan, and is trying to avoid a war in Iran by seeking a diplomatic solution. I hope that Congress will give the Administration the time it needs to determine whether it can achieve a final deal with Iran to end their nuclear weapons programs."
