June 24, 2010
DENVER (AP) – Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano is expected to talk to Hispanic political leaders from around the country about the Obama administration’s plans to overhaul the nation’s immigration laws.
Napolitano will speak Thursday to hundreds of Hispanic politicians attending the annual conference for the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials.
NALEO represents more than 6,000 Hispanic elected and appointed officials in the country.
Napolitano’s visit comes during a week in which President Barack Obama asked Congress for $600 million in emergency funds for 1,000 more Border Patrol agents.
