Gutierrez in Richmond, Va. to prod Cantor on immigration reform

WASHINGTON — Rep. Luis Gutiettez D-Ill. on Wednesday hits Richmond Va. to discuss immigration reform at the State Capitol. Richmond is in the congressional district of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor R-Va. congressional district (VA-7) and the event is designed to try to prod Cantor into getting House leadership to take up immigration reform — almost a year after the Senate passed a comprehensive reform bill.

There is not a lot of time left. In a speech on the House floor last week (May 20) Gutierrez noted only 18 legislative days before Congress takes a July 4 break.
