Regarding immigration reform, Jeffries, a Democrat, acknowledged the belief within his party that the immigration system is broken and needs addressing.

He pointed out President Biden’s commitment to tackling border challenges and highlighted the bipartisan efforts that were undermined by Republicans following instructions from Donald Trump. Jeffries credited Suozzi for supporting a bipartisan bill in the Senate and criticized Republicans for walking away from the negotiations.

The discussion also touched on humanitarian assistance, with Jeffries emphasizing the need for an up or down vote in the House of Representatives on a comprehensive bipartisan national security bill that has already passed the Senate.
