IMMIGRATION HEARING TO IOWA
Washington, D.C.– Iowa Congressman Steve King announced today Iowa will host a public field immigration hearing of the U.S. House Judiciary Committee in Dubuque on September 1st.
The U.S. House is bringing the immigration reform debate to the American people this summer through a series of immigration reform field hearings held across the country. King serves on the House Judiciary Committee, Immigration Subcommittee and the Immigration Reform Caucus.
The hearing will be open to the public and will hear testimony from witnesses and discuss, “Do the Senate’s Reid-Kennedy bill’s amnesty provisions repeat the mistakes of the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986?”
“It is crucial for Iowans to be involved in this debate, as immigration policy affects the national and economic security of this country for generations,” said King. “I hope many Iowans will take advantage of this opportunity to participate in federal policy-making and make Iowa’s voice heard.”
