BPC Immigration Task Force’s Co-chairs Haley Barbour and Ed Rendell Travel to Atlanta to Talk About Prospects for Reform

Washington, D.C. – Former Governors Haley Barbour and Ed Rendell, co-chairs of the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Immigration Task Force, will join The Essential Economy Council to discuss the future of the immigration reform this Monday, August 19 starting at 3:00PM.

Earlier that morning, the Rotary Club of Atlanta will host the governors at the Club’s monthly meeting. Reporters are also welcome to attend that event, which is held from 12:15PM – 1:30PM at the Loudermilk Conference Center.

The politically diverse members of Bipartisan Policy Center’s (BPC) Immigration Task Force have agreed upon an initial set of principles and policy recommendations within four key areas that they see as critical to fixing our broken system. These bipartisan recommendations constitute a sampling of areas where stakeholders can compromise, agree on key principles, and move the immigration debate forward.

If you are interested in attending either or both events, please RSVP to [email protected] Learn more about the task force here.
