U.S. Secretary of Commerce Urges Immigration Reform

La Opinion, Posted: Aug 13, 2008

Washington D.C.U.S. Secretary of Commerce, Carlos Gutirrez is urging Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform this year, reports La Opinion. Gutirrez described the current system as "entirely without practice, without a moral sense, and without a logical, economic sense." He was referring to the recent Immigration Customs and Enforcement (ICE) raids in Postville, Iowa, which made headlines inside, and outside, the U.S. During that raid, ICE arrested 389 undocumented immigrants, the majority of whom were Latino and are currently facing deportation. In the absence of a comprehensive immigration reform, Gutirrez asserted that state and local governments must take their own measures to combat the hiring of undocumented workers. Gutirrez will meet with members of Congress next week in Atlanta, Georgia to discuss immigration reform .
