The Duckworth Diary
This week has been my first week back home as part of the August Work Period, and I have enjoyed participating in events around the 8th District.
This weekend I celebrated the Fourth of July in Hoffman Estates by attending the Northwest Fourth Fest and the Kane County Farmers Market. It was a nice way to honor our nation’s servicemembers and give thanks for the freedoms we enjoy every day.
This week, I joined my colleagues at the Illinois Business Immigration Coalition’s Moving Forward: Immigration Bottom-Line 2014 roundtable. We discussed the need for fair, practical and humane comprehensive immigration reform, and reasons why Speaker Boehner should call this legislation to a vote.
