Today, the AFL-CIO will host a forum in Los Angeles to debate immigration reform. La Opinión reports that the meeting, which will be held in LA’s historic Olvera Street neighborhood, will feature Representatives Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-CA) and Judy Chu (D-CA); Bishop Alexander Salazar of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles; LAPD Chief Charlie Beck; Angélica Salas, Executive Director of CHIRLA; and Maria Elena Durazo of the AFL-CIO.
A Notimex feature story notes that the White House is pushing privately for immigration reform. The article includes quotes from Frank Sharry, Executive Director of America’s Voice, from a meeting with reporters last Friday.
Friday’s edition of San Diego’s La Prensa also included an op-ed column from Frank Sharry contradicting the conventional wisdom in Washington on immigration reform.
