WASHINGTON — Today, Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson held a series of meetings to discuss a wide range of immigration issues, including the need for commonsense immigration reform, at the Department of Homeland Security’s headquarters in Washington, D.C.  These meetings are part of the thorough and inclusive review process Secretary Johnson is undertaking to assess how the Department can better enforce and administer immigration laws.

Secretary Johnson met with representatives from Numbers USA, Progressives for Immigration Reform, the Center for Immigration Studies, the Federation for American Immigration Reform, and the Eagle Forum. He also met with representatives from United We Dream and participated in a conference call with sheriffs from around the country and members of the National Sheriff’s Association.

As part of the on-going review process, Secretary Johnson continues to engage with various stakeholders from all sides of the immigration debate, which represent a diverse set of views and opinions in order to assess areas where we can further align our enforcement policies with our goal of sound law enforcement practice that prioritizes public safety. In addition, Secretary Johnson continues to seek the advice and input of his team within DHS, to include component leadership and frontline employees who are charged with implementing DHS policies and enforcement priorities.

Since taking office, the Secretary has made clear that he shares the President’s commitment of enforcing and administering our immigration laws effectively and sensibly, in line with our Nation’s values.
