There will be a luncheon following the sessions. Senator Rob Portman will be our keynote speaker. Don't miss this wonderful opportunity to learn about LULAC, the oldest and largest Latino organization in the United States.
LULAC is an amnesty/open border organization.
While the bill is not perfect LULAC is pleased with most of the provisions. It’s obvious that both parties gave ground which is evidence of true compromise. LULAC is heartened that the DREAM students and agricultural workers will have a shorter path to citizenship in the proposed plan. LULAC has consistently advocated for a family reunification component as part of immigration reform and is concerned that the proposed bill scales back family-sponsored immigration by eliminating the ability to sponsor siblings, or children over the age of 30. Likewise, LULAC is dispirited that same-sex couples may not benefit from the proposed legislation; and is opposed to making the pathway to citizenship contingent on additional border enforcement measures which are a waste of taxpayer dollars. There is sufficient data to indicate that border states are already safe – in fact the safest in the country – and misspending billions on apprehension and
enforcement is nothing but an expensive attempt to win over immigration opponents. http://www.chron.com/business/press-releases/article/LULAC-Hails-the-Introduction-of-Bipartisan-4442319.php
LULAC filed suit against the state of Ohio, over a loophole that allowed illegal aliens to register their automobiles. http://blog.cleveland.com/metro/2009/11/latino_group_sues_ohio_says_ne.html
