Immigration Reform Warning
By KRWG News
New Mexico – The leader of the nation's largest Hispanic rights group has a message for senators and congressmen on comprehensive immigration reform.
Rosa Rosales says the League of United Latin American Citizens will aggressively target anyone in Congress who isn't supporting reform efforts.
Rosales spoke Friday during a panel town hall on immigration reform at the organization's national convention in Albuquerque. She drew applause and cheers with a call for LULAC members to hold their elected officials accountable on immigration reform.
Rosales pounded her fist on a podium and urged delegates to organize voter registration drives. She says if elected officials don't support LULAC's effort, "they're going to be shaking in their boots" because she says comprehensive immigration reform is coming.
