Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard

Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard, Downey's representative in Congress, met at the White House on Wednesday to discuss immigration reform with President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden (pictured above with the congresswoman). This is how Roybal-Allard described the meeting: "[Wednesday] the Congressional Hispanic Caucus had a positive, productive meeting at the White House with President Obama and Vice President Biden. The President is fully committed to fixing our broken immigration system and to signing a comprehensive immigration reform bill that reflects our American values. We discussed how we can continue working together to address this critical challenge in a fair, comprehensive way that creates a path to earned citizenship for the nation's 11 million undocumented immigrants. ********** Published: July 11, 2013 - Volume 12 - Issue 13
