Sep 15, 2017
Press Release

CHICAGO – Today, U.S. Representative Mike Quigley (IL-05), released the following statement in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, which runs from September 15 through October 15:

“This Hispanic Heritage Month, we celebrate the immense contributions Latinos make to every aspect of our nation. Whether it be in the arts and literature or through scientific research, entrepreneurship, and military service, the Latino community has added to our ‘melting pot’ in ways that grow our economy, enrich our culture, and benefit our communities.

“Today, we are witnessing firsthand the perseverance and ambition Latinos possess as young DREAMers are under attack. As a nation founded by immigrants, rooted in the promises of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, we must stand with Latinos this month and every month to support their dreams. I look forward to continuing to work with my colleagues in the House, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, and the Chicago Latino community to celebrate our diversity, expand economic opportunity, and ensure that all families get their fair shot at the American Dream.”
