Gutierrez to Join Judiciary Committee in Advance of Immigration Debate

Rate this Entry

Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), one of the most vocal proponents of immigration reform in the House of Representatives, is, surprisingly, not on one of the major committees dealing with immigration. That's about to change as the Chicago Congressman temporarily departs the influential Financial Services Committee to take a spot on the Judiciary Committee. He won't be on the Immigration Subcommittee of the Judiciary Committee, but the entire Judiciary Committee will have to approve whatever the Immigration Subcommittee passes before the measure goes to the entire House for a vote.


The Hill reports what motivated Gutierrez's move:

"Giving up 20-plus years of seniority on Financial
Services, even temporarily, is not easy, but passing comprehensive
immigration reform is my passion and my commitment to my constituents
and immigrants all across our country," Gutierrez said Friday in a
statement announcing the change.


"All of the road signs are pointed in the right direction, and I
felt I must be on the Judiciary Committee during this Congress to help
the others on the Committee get immigration reform to the finish line,"
he said.

    I just hope with his appointment it doesn't turn out to be the case of perfect being enemy of good.

    Are there Record Deportations Under Obama? No, he is The Liar-in-Chief, not The Deporter-in-Chief.

    In other words, I am indispensable. What an egomaniac.
