A former La Raza lobbyist will reportedly work on the Senate Judiciary Committee for Sen. Pat Leahy (D-VT), the committee’s chairman.
Olga Medina “was an immigration policy associate at La Raza for two years,” clerked for the American Civil Liberties Union, and “was a White House Domestic Policy Council intern in 2013,” according to Legistorm.
She reportedly “lobbied for La Raza on issues including the Reuniting Families Act, DREAM Act and AgJOBS Act of 2009.”
Establishment Republicans and Democrats have indicated that even if Republicans gain control of the Senate after the midterm elections, they would want to work on an amnesty bill. Senate Democrats urged President Barack Obama to delay his executive amnesty before the midterms to help them retain control.
