AUSTIN, Texas — The Democratic candidate in the race to replace longtime Republican Congressman Lamar Smith has called immigration “one of the defining issues of our time.”

“Responding to news that the U.S. House will vote on competing for immigration bills next week, Joseph Kopser said real immigration reform is needed quickly.”

“Let’s make a path to legalization and then citizenship so that we can not only do what’s right by families and the American people, but let’s add new workers to the American workforce because as I travel around the ten counties of this district, there are help wanted signs that are fading in the sun and we need more people in this country to do that,” Kopser said.
