Gutierrez Rallies Participants at Reform Immigration Summit

Washington D.C.- During a welcoming luncheon on Wednesday at the Reform Immigration FOR America Summit in Washington D.C., Representative Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) spoke to a crowd of nearly 800 individuals from 45 states.

Gutierrez emphasized to the crowd they are getting close to an immigration reform legislation saying that, “the wind is at our backs” but that “we have to cross the finish line.”

As a champion for immigration reform, the Congressman encouraged the crowd to organize and mobilize their communities for immigration reform. “We have been effective, Gutierrez said, “but we have to be better in the next coming months.”

Throughout the day, participants were taken through presentations led by spirited speakers on the strategies that will be used this year to win passage of Comprehensive Immigration Reform.
