(Washington, DC) - Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Chairman of the Subcommittee on the Middle East and North Africa, made the following statement in response to the text of President Obama’s final State of the Union speech released earlier tonight by the White House.
Statement by Ros-Lehtinen:

Miami, Florida – Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (FL-27) invites South Floridians to join her, former Congressman Lincoln Diaz-Balart, and various organizations from our local Nicaraguan community to celebrate the 18th anniversary of the passage of the NACARA law, which granted legal status to thousands of Nicaraguans, Guatemalans, Salvadorans, and others. The event will be held on Saturday, January 23 at 4pm at the West Dade Regional Library, 9445 Coral Way in Miami.
