From the office of Rep. Peter Roskam (R, Illinois 6th District)…
WASHINGTON – Congressman Peter Roskam (IL-06) released the latest installment of Ask Peter today, a frequent video conversation with Sixth District residents about issues important to them. In this segment, Congressman Roskam answers a question from Janet Bukac of Elmhurst who asked, “What is Congress doing about our broken immigration system?”
“We compete, and we welcome students from around the world here in Illinois, in particular the University of Illinois and other top engineering and science programs.
“These students are educated here in the United States and then rather than staying here and being part of our economy, they’re going back home and they are competing against us in the world marketplace.
“Let’s change that. Let’s make it so that those students stay here and create jobs and opportunities for all of us. “
Ask Peter videos will be available to the public at Roskam.house.gov, facebook.com/reproskam, twitter.com/peterroskam, and via press release. The videos will also be sent to the constituents via e-mail, Facebook, or Twitter, depending on how they contacted the Roskam office.
