Congressman Pete Gallego Participating In Immigration Panel Monday in San Antonio

Congressman Pete Gallego has already distinguished himself in the immigration debate, owing to his unique status representing Texas's 23rd District, which contains the longest stretch of the Mexican-American border of any congressional district.

Monday, Gallego will join Congressman Luis Gutierrez (IL-04), Texas AFL-CIO President Becky Moeller, Texas Farm Bureau's Steve Pringle, and United We Dream's Carolina Canizalez for a panel discussion in San Antonio. The panel is free and open to the public, and will focus on Comprehensive Immigration Reform, including industry perspectives and Texas economic benefits.

The panel will be from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Palo Alto College Performing Arts Center, 1400 W. Villaret Blvd., San Antonio, TX 78224.

Whatever immigration reform legislation manages to pass both houses of Congress will likely have a tremendous impact on Texas, so it's great to see such a diverse coalition of leaders in our state proactively addressing what's at stake and framing it for Texas audiences.
