Rep. Frederica Wilson leads immigration forum tonight with Luis Gutierrez

From a press release:

Miami, FL — Today, at 7:30 p.m., Congresswoman Frederica Wilson (FL-24) will be joined, at a forum on immigration reform, by Congressional leaders, from across the nation, who are fighting for change and who will influence, shape and vote on new immigration laws. Congresswoman Wilson urges the thousands of undocumented immigrants living in the shadows in South Florida and the thousands of immigrants waiting and hoping to one day take part in the American dream to attend.

Taking part in the discussion, along with Congresswoman Wilson are Congressional colleagues, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (IL-4), Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (TX-18), Rep. Yvette Clarke (NY-9), and Rep. Marc Veasey (TX-33).  The program will be moderated by Ediberto Roman, Professor of Law at Florida International University.

“It’s fitting that we’re having this major policy event in Miami—one of the most diverse, immigrant-rich cities in the world.  Our current immigration system is broken.  But we are fighting to fix it.  Through this forum, people in our community will hear from and speak directly to the Members of Congress who are leading this charge.”

The event will be held at the Haitian Evangelical Church, led by Pastor David Eugene, in North Miami.

It is free and open to the public.  All immigrants, regardless of status, are welcome.

@juan - Last time I checked, immigration issues are a federal NOT state issue.

Not so smart now

@Repubtally then why would Scott have ran before on a tea party platform supporting the Arizona law that targeted Hispanics?

RICK SCOTT CAMPAIGNING TO BRING ARIZONA ANTI HISPANIC LAW TO FLORIDA

HAVE WE NOT LEARNED OUR LESSON YET? ARE WE GOING TO PAY WITH OUR TAXES ONCE AGAIN, BECAUSE WE TRUSTED THE POLITICIANS?

Just like the 1986 Immigration Reform & Control Act (IRCA) it’s nothing but another fiasco which does nothing to alleviate the pressure on the American Worker. Businesses should be held accountable and for every illegal alien they hire, should be a hefty fine plus a two year prison sentence. We need to eliminate or alter the BIRTHRIGHT CITIZENSHIP ACT, so only children of citizens; can claim citizenship for their children? Illegal aliens are demanding a Path to Citizenship? They should be forever grateful they are not deported and allowed under massive criticism they can get permanent status? As an addition allowing financial sponsorship is not worth the paper it’s printed on, because it never gets enforced and once again helpless family members must be supported by taxpayers. From the thousands of commentaries I have read in the last month, people see this as another win for corporate welfare and a sly move to keep illegal aliens arriving here? Hundreds of billions of your dollars are spent on the family of chain migration programs, whether from overseas or across borders. Cannot just blame the border, although the left don’t want you to know the real numbers coming by that means? There are so many special exceptions and waivers in this reform package, it’s just another fraudulent game played on every American taxpayer. If this insipid bill (S.477) passes, then not only the U.S. impoverished persons will greatly suffer, but the middle class as well. Most affected will be African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, but eventually we will all suffer. Get on the phone now and start blasting your U.S. Senators, House Republicans or even state Representatives. The toll-free Washington number, to be connected is -- 1-888-978-3065 --. DO SOMETHING NOW? ALL THOSE POLITICIANS WHO ARE IMPLICATED IN THIS EXPEDITED AMNESTY, WILL SURELY BE SHUNNED AND UNLIKELY TO GET REELECTED? THAT’S IF NON-CITIZENS DO NOT COMMIT PERJURY AGAIN AND VOTE IN OUR ELECTIONS?
