Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton released the following statement after President Barack Obama threw his support behind an immigration reform movement on Tuesday.

The statement has not been altered in any way.

"Yesterday and today, national leaders finally are taking a step forward on immigration reform, and I'm incredibly hopeful that we'll find a solution and achieve results. I met with President Obama before his speech and I told him I was proud of him. He encouraged me to keep encouraging our senators to move forward on immigration reform. I look forward to working on a new beginning on immigration, including border security, a pathway to citizenship, the DREAM Act and modernizing our visa system for high-tech companies. I'm optimistic we will find a solution that will power our economy forward with a talented and diverse workforce that makes our city competitive on a global level."
