House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will visit Elmhurst for a community discussion on immigration as part of her ‘Speaker in the House’ series.

Hosted by Congresswoman Grace Meng, Pelosi will speak at Elmhurst Hospital Center on Monday June 24, from 10.40 a.m. to noon.

The ‘Speaker in the House’ series aims to engage communities across the country in political discussion and ensure that the voices of the American people are being heard by Congress.

Pelosi and Meng will be joined by immigration activists and immigration advocacy organizations to discuss policies and legislation aimed at improving the immigration system.

They are also expected to discuss the importance of the census.

Included in the program will be a discussion with audience members followed by a question and answer segment.

The event follows the recent House passage of the American Dream and Promise Act, which aims to protect millions of Dreamers from deportation and provide them with an opportunity to obtain permanent legal status. The bill, however, is not expected to pass in the Senate in its current form.

TIME: Monday, June 24, 2019 from 10:40 a.m. to 12 p.m. .

LOCATION: Elmhurst Hospital Center, Auditorium A1-22 (ground floor), 79-01 Broadway, Elmhurst
