Rep. Ruben Gallego Discusses Immigration and Transportation Improvements in the South Central Corridor
Washington, DC – Yesterday during President Obama’s visit to Phoenix, Congressman Ruben Gallego discussed several topics of importance to Arizona – among them immigration and transportation improvements for the South Central corridor of Phoenix.
Congressman Gallego thanked President Obama for taking bold executive action on immigration that will keep immigrant families together, boost our economy and begin to fix the issues with our broken immigration system. Rep. Gallego also assured President Obama that he will fight against Republican proposals that try to stop progress on this important issue.
Congressman Gallego also discussed the need for transportation improvements in the South Central corridor of Phoenix – including expanding the light rail - and the Phoenix TIGER proposal which would help build upon previous federal and local capital investments that are currently underway in the area. The TIGER Award would not just improve transportation but also improve access to employment and the overall quality of life of for residents in the area.
“Immigration and transportation improvements for the South Central corridor are important issues for my constituents that will greatly affect families in Arizona. The President is committed to these issues and I look forward to working with him and my fellow colleagues to continue moving Arizona and our country forward.”
