Gutierrez ready to work with president on immigration solutions

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

On Tuesday, Congressman Luis V. Gutierrez (D-IL) was reelected to his eleventh term in the U.S. House of Representatives representing the 4th District of Illinois.

On Wednesday, Gutierrez, who is Chairman of the Immigration Task Force of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, spoke at a press conference to discuss the national and local election results and the role of immigrants, Latinos, and the immigration issue.

He issued a statement, saying:

"I have been saying that the road to the White House goes through Latino neighborhoods. When I traveled to Florida and Nevada and Colorado for the President, it was clear to me that Latino voters were energized and engaged and ready to believe that the President will fight for fairness for immigrants in his second term. I am so proud of Latino voters and their massive turnout. In state after state and in the nation as a whole, Latino voters made the difference for President Obama and for Democrats."

Gutierrez also stated that he is, "ready to work with the President and anyone else who is serious about solutions for the American people and for immigrants."
