Press Release

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi issued the following statement on his appointment as co-chair of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC) Immigration Task Force alongside Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (WA-07) who chairs the panel:

“I am honored to be appointed as a co-chair of the CAPAC Immigration Task Force alongside co-chair Rep. Pramila Jayapal as we continue to fight to ensure our immigration system reflects American values. My parents brought our family to the United States from India when I was only a few months old because they believed in the American Dream, just as immigrants do today. I’m proud to be taking on this new role within CAPAC on immigration issues and to build on my previous work fighting to end the Trump Administration’s Muslim ban, pass comprehensive immigration reform, and reform our high-skilled immigration system. I look forward to continuing this work and to improving our immigration system for AAPI immigrants and all other immigrants who wish to call the U.S. home.”
