Latin American citizens’ convention missing US Representative

The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) is holding a convention in Milwaukee this week. The topics for discussion include the proposed legislation to make immigration laws more strict. This legislation was introduced by US Representative James Sensenbrenner. But instead of facing the group that he is discriminating, his spokesperson claims that Sensenbrenner is in session and has other events to attend. Ironically, Sensenbrenner is from Menomonee Falls, which borders Milwaukee’s northwest corner. It’s interesting how he thinks he can justify this as an issue for the American people but can’t actually face the sole group that he seeks to legislate. In my opinion, that is a cowardice approach.
