FSPA Encuentro@TheBorder hosts Immigration 101 Update
Ronnate Asirwatham, government relations director and lead lobbyist on immigration for Network Lobby for Catholic Social Justice, was a guest at a recent FSPA Encuentro@TheBorder presentation. Ronnate updated attendees on her 2021 summer series Immigration 101. She provided information on how the midterm election will impact immigration.
During Q&A, Ronnate addressed the “block” in congress that makes it difficult for immigrants to work temporarily in the United States, “It is very difficult to break through in this environment; migration is not a bad thing, it is not a negative. Despite that, there are immigration visas that allow for this, for example. the agricultural Visa.” Ronnette also informed attendees about the champions of immigration reform in both the Senate and the House.
