    CARTWRIGHT asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Mr. CARTWRIGHT. Mr. Speaker, I rise today in support of comprehensive immigration reform.



    In the Bible, it couldn't be more clear: When the Son of Man returns in all his glory, escorted by the angels, then He will take His seat on the thrown of glory. All the nations will be assembled before Him, and He will separate the people one from another, like sheep from goats. On the right hand, He will place the sheep; on the left, the goats. And to those on His right, he will say: Come accept the inheritance that is yours, that has been prepared for you since the foundation of the world, for when I was hungry, you gave me food; when I was thirsty, you gave me drink; when I was a stranger, you made me welcome.

    My fellow Members of this House, comprehensive immigration reform is not just the right thing to do; it is the righteous thing to do.
