Schock Comments on Lock and Dam Bill, Immigration

He weighs in on what the next steps should be
CREVE COEUR - Congressman Aaron Schock was in Central Illinois Thursday to promote a bill that aims to add $50-million to fixing the nations Locks and Dams.

Peoria Lock and Dam, where Schock met with local leaders is in need of about $40-million in repairs. The measure would aim to get projects done in three years instead of the now average of 15. The bill passed in the House by a landslide and now moves onto the Senate.

Schock also commented on another measure that has met less bipartisan agreement; immigration.
"Forty percent who are here illegally came here legally on a guest worker visa then overstayed their visa program, so you talk about illegal immigration it's not just a matter of border security, you got to deal something with visa reform as well," he said.

Schock said he thinks a comprehensive package needs to be passed. That includes measures to deal with children of immigrants born in the U.S.
