Reps. Kinzinger, Gutierrez; Sen. Kirk; Rahm at immigration forum today

 

WASHINGTON–With House Republicans not moving on any immigration bills, the Chicago Council on Global Affairs and the Illinois Business Immigration Coalition–both pro-reform organizations–hold a joint forum where three out of the four speakers are pushing for an overhaul and a fourth, Rep. Adam Kinzinger R-Ill. is uncommitted on the path forward.

 

My column on how the six Illinois GOP House members are not making immigration reform a priority is HERE.

 

The others on the program are Sen. Mark Kirk R-Ill. who voted for the Senate comprehensive immigration reform package last year; Rep. Luis Gutierrez D-Ill. leading reform efforts locally and nationally, and Mayor Rahm Emanuel.

 

The moderator is John Rowe, the retired chairman and CEO of Exelon Corporation, board member of The Chicago Council and co-chair of the Illinois Business Immigration Coalition–which is pressuring the Illinois Republicans to take action on immigration. In my column, Rowe–a leading Illinois Republican, influential on the GOP fundraising scene–was critical of the Illinois Six.

 

The discussion is at 10 a.m. Chicago time at the Standard Club on Plymouth Court. Watch the livestream HERE.

 

Kinzinger is the rare Illinois House Republican willing to discuss immigration before a large, public audience.

 

“Congressman Kinzinger is a part of the event tomorrow to help provide a House Republican’s perspective on the issue. I do not anticipate any announcements,” Kinzinger spokesman Zach Hunter told me.

 

“As members of the House of Representatives return home for a district work period this week, I think it is important to have a candid discussion with constituents about this important issue and the current politics surrounding it in Washington,” Kinzinger said in a statement.
