Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) will be the keynote speaker at Eagle Forum’s annual conference awards dinner on September 13.
The conference, which runs from September 12-15 in Arlington, Virginia, will also feature a tour of the nation’s Capitol hosted by Rep. Steve King (R-IA). Both Gohmert and King are members of the House Immigration Reform Caucus and are two of the most vocal anti-immigrant stalwarts in Congress.
Given the Eagle Forum’s consistent opposition to immigration reform efforts, Gohmert and King’s participation in the conference is expected. This year Eagle Forum has actively worked alongside anti-immigrant organizations like NumbersUSA, holding conference calls and organizing rallies to mobilize supporters in hopes of advancing a nativist agenda.
