Gutierrez to NHCA

'Immigration Reform Will Happen'

Jose Sueiro
Tucked away in a small banquet room in the basement of the Rayburn Building, Congressman Luis Gutierrez addressed an assembled group of roughly 30 members of the National Hispanic Construction Association (NHCA) on Tuesday, March 24, 2015, at their legislative symposium. In what were inspired and passionate remarks to the intimate group of Hispanic businesspersons gathered at the lunch time press conference, Gutierrez repeated once and again his belief that passage of Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR) was simply a matter of time and "if the Republicans are smart", they would pass it before the 2016 election.

Dr. Ricardo Galbis

DC's Latino Mental Health Pioneer & Community Icon

Jose Sueiro
"Oye Chico, como estas?" is the proverbial greeting of psychiatrist Ricardo Galbis whenever he meets someone in the community (loosely translated; "Hey man, how you doing?"). The warm, gentle, proud Cuban doctor is an institution in this town and a constant, peripatetic presence in the life of the Latino community where he has touched so many troubled lives and looked after so many different communities. He is considered a distinguished elder and a prominent icon for Hispanics in the region.
