Congressman Luis Gutierrez took the House floor this morning to make an introduction.

“I would like the Republican Party to meet America’s Latinos,” he said.

“It’s hard to meet us all at once, because there are more than 53 million of us, but let me tell you a little bit about who we are and what we do,” added Gutierrez.

Illinois Democrat Rep. Gutierrez called on Republicans to join Democrats to pass immigration reform.

“I believe Election Day was check-mate for the Republican Party’s extreme, unfair and intolerant anti-immigrant policies,” he said.

“Whatever your reason for coming to the table, please come,” the Congressman added. “Together we can fight for justice for immigrants.”
