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.
