There are many things that are broken about the immigration system and many issues that need to be addressed. But the heart of reform is fixing the legal immigration system so it works for America in the future, admitting the immigrants we need and preventing future illegal immigration. The best way to head off future illegal immigration is with a legal visa program that works, allowing employers in an array of industries – hospitality, food processing, construction, home health care and others – to hire foreign workers lawfully when there are no willing and able Americans. Texas congressman Ted Poe, chairman of the House Immigration Reform Caucus, will join a panel of Houston employers to discuss the immigration debate in Washington and explore what Texas business owners need from immigration reform.
WHEN Tuesday, August 20, 8:00 a.m.
WHERE Pappadeaux – Willowbrook Mall
7110 FM 1960 Road West
Houston, TX 77069
PARTICIPANTS Rep. Ted Poe Member of Congress
