Rep. Gutiérrez: “Free Puerto Rico”

Feb 11, 2016 Press Release

Washington, DC – On Thursday, Rep. Luis V. Gutiérrez (D-IL) spoke during the Morning Hour on the floor of the House of Representatives (approx. 10 am ET) to deliver “a simple message from the Puerto Rican people: Free Puerto Rico…so she can solve the problem of her crushing debt without being handcuffed by Congress, its distant and inattentive colonial master.” The Congressman said Washington must help chart a path forward so that “Puerto Rico is neither absolved of her obligations nor mortally wounded by them.”

Rep. Gutiérrez Speaks About Raids and Central American Refugees on Floor of the House

Feb 3, 2016 Press Release

Washington, DC – On Wednesday, Rep. Luis V. Gutiérrez (D-IL) spoke during the Morning Hour on the floor of the House of Representatives (approx. 10 am ET) about Central American refugees and immigration raids carried out to round them up. On Thursday, the Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing assigning blame for the refugees fleeing Central America to President Obama, while at the same time, the Obama Administration is saying raids in Central American communities in the US have substantially slowed the influx of asylum seekers and refugees. Lost in the politics is any serious attempt to legislate, to do something about the broader issues that drive migration, that feed the black market, or that trigger raids on family homes and school children.

Rep. Gutiérrez On Supreme Court Cert Decision Re: Immigration Executive Actions

Jan 19, 2016 Press Release

Washington, DC – On Tuesday, Rep. Luis V. Gutiérrez (D-IL) issued a statement reacting to the news that the Supreme Court would take up Texas v. United States, the lawsuit and injunction preventing implementation of the President’s executive action on immigration. Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) and an expansion of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) – two components of President Obama’s application of prosecutorial discretion to potential deportees – lie in the balance. The decision by the Supreme Court to take up the case means the legal fight delaying implementation of the President’s actions should be resolved later this year. The following is a statement by Rep. Luis V. Gutiérrez:
