PHOENIX -- Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake released the following statement Thursday after the Senate passed a comprehensive immigration bill.

The statement has not been altered in any way.

"Arizonans have had to wait far too long for Congress to take action to fix our broken immigration system. I am pleased to join my colleagues on both sides of the aisle in supporting the passage of comprehensive reform legislation," said Flake. "While neither side got everything it wanted, this legislation goes a long way toward securing our borders, modernizes our legal immigration system, spurs economic growth and provides a tough-but-fair solution to those here illegally. Now, it's time for the House to act."
