Urgent Community Meeting for Families of Immigrants

If you are a United States citizen who fears that a family member may be at risk of deportation, U.S. Congressman Luis V. Gutierrez invites you to attend a community meeting to discuss your family member’s situation.
Saturday, November 15
Saint Pius the V Church
1919 S. Ashland Avenue, Chicago
9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Achieving comprehensive immigration reform will not be easy, and it will continue to require a bipartisan effort from Congress.  However, by putting a human face on the issue and addressing the harm that our broken immigration system is causing millions of U.S. citizens, we can begin to put a stop to the raids and deportation-only policies that rip our families apart.  Only United States citizens representing your family should attend this important event.

Immigration Casework

In Congress, I am the chairman of the Democratic Caucus Task Force on Immigration. In this role, I have helped to prevent the break-up of immigrants' families and have championed initiatives to eliminate the massive backlog of citizenship applications.  Throughout the years I have remained an active leader in the fight to defend the rights of immigrants so they can receive the protections and benefits given to them under the law.

My staff and I have led the fight to help immigrants with a wide range of concerns facing newcomers to our country.  In Chicago, my office has held citizenship workshops, helping over 30,000 people take the first steps towards citizenship. If you have questions about any aspects of becoming a citizen or other immigration concerns, please contact my offices at any time.

Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974, I must have a signed  case authorization form before I can begin work on your case. This form is Casework Authorization Sheet is made available for your convenience.  By completing this form at home, you may expedite the process of seeking help with your case.  Once the form is completed, you must still bring the form to our office IN PERSON. 

Casework Authorization Sheets will not be accepted via fax or email.  During your visit, we will also determine if you need to be referred to another office.

Thank you for the opportunity to assist you.
