Following the election of Massachusetts Republican Scott Brown to the U.S. Senate, many progressives are wondering what his victory means for the progressive agenda. Immigration reform is being identified as an issue that will attract bipartisan support and give lawmakers a chance to show the country that they can work together on an issue and achieve results.
Today, at noon, Wonk Room’s Andrea Nill will be discussing the policy, politics, and prospects of progressive immigration reform in 2010 on a panel being led by Nico Pitney, National Editor of The Huffington Post with introductions by Think Progress’ Faiz Shakir. The event, which is being co-sponsored by the Center for American Progress Action Fund, America’s Voice, and Netroots Nation, will also feature panelists Markos Moulitsas Zúñiga (Kos), Founder and Editor of Daily Kos, and María Elena Durazo, Executive Secretary-Treasurer of the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO. Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) will kick off the event with opening remarks.
