Immigration Reform a Moral, Economic Issue, Must Be Top Priority: SecComm Pritzker

"For the second time in a week, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker publicly expressed her support for immigration reform.  "Put simply, this must be at the top of our to-do list," Pritzker said Thursday at an event for the Los Angeles World Affairs Council that was attended by consuls general from Mexico, France and the United Arab Emirates as well as local city leader Jan Perry.  Pritzker, whose great-grandfather immigrated from Russia at the age of 10, told the Los Angeles Times that immigration reform is a "moral, as well as an economic issue" and one that holds "economic opportunity" for the country." - L.A.
