ADVISORY: Secretary Janet Napolitano on Immigration Policy

November 13, 2009, 9:00am – 10:00am

As Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano brings to her job a deep understanding of immigration and border issues from her experience as Governor, Attorney General, and U.S. Attorney in the State of Arizona.

President Barack Obama has asked Secretary Napolitano to play a lead role on immigration reform. As the United States looks to fix its broken immigration system, Secretary Napolitano has been speaking with congressional leaders, law enforcement officials, business, labor, and faith leaders, and advocates from across the country—and across the political spectrum. At CAP, Secretary Napolitano will make a case why immigration reform is more needed—and more realistic—than ever before.

Join us to hear Secretary Napolitano discuss the work her department has been doing to prepare for broader immigration reform, and her unique perspective on this matter of vital importance to America’s future. A Q & A session will follow her remarks.
