DENVER — Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2013 — Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia tonight released the following statement on President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address:
“The President's vision for America's prosperity is based on the belief that an investment in people - all people - drives real economic success. Here in Colorado, we know that means a strong commitment to strengthening public education and providing access to high-quality skills development for all of our young people.
“We also support the President's commitment to providing a fair path to legal status through comprehensive immigration reform. We hope that Sen. Marco Rubio and the Senators who are demonstrating courageous bipartisan leadership on this issue will be successful in addressing America's need for security, a system for hiring undocumented workers to strengthen our economy, and an opportunity for all students to pursue higher education."
