Rep. Gutierrez to House GOP: Time is Running Out to Act on Immigration

Share This:

Today, Rep. Luis Gutierrez along with other members of Congress held a press conference on Capitol Hill to remind Republicans that time is running out for them to act on immigration reform.  If they don’t indicate soon that they are willing to move on legislation, then the reform process will move on without them — and they’ll be cut out of any opportunity to repair their image with Latino voters before the 2016 elections.

A new prop — a giant hourglass — made an appearance to underscore Rep. Gutierrez’s point.  Will House Republicans have the good sense to act before it’s too late?  Or are they going to spend the rest of the Congressional session giving even more votes to Steve King?
