McALLEN - One of the key issues concerning Valley voters, heading into the Presidential election, is the current immigration policy.

NewCenter 23 had interviewed Republican Chairman Javier Villalobos about his disagreement with the Obama administration's immigration policy and on Sunday NewsCenter 23 was able to get Congressman Henry Cuellar's perspective on the law. Congressman Cuellar stated, "When you have a U.S. citizen, doesn't apply to an undocumented alien, doesn't apply to a legal resident, but a U.S. citizen that is married to an undocumented person or has children that are undocumented that means that they can provide, they can ask for that waiver and wait over here while they do that. That's really the only change to try to keep people together. So they didn't change the law, their just saying let's try to keep them together as they make that waiver."

Congressman Cuellar says he is a strong supporter of the law.

henry does not believe in the rule of law or the US Constitution, when a person enters the US illegally that person knows that no matter who they marry, how many children they have; they have violated the law and must be removed from the USA, millions of people have entered the US legally following the rule of law and the US Constitution; those who violate the law must be punished; I did not marry an illegal alien nor did I have children with an illegal alien; the rule of law must be followed
