GEKAS NAMED CHAIRMAN OF IMMIGRATION AND CLAIMS SUBCOMMITTEE

Plans include reforming INS and reviewing current policies

Washington, D.C.--Congressman George W. Gekas (R-Pa.) announced today that he has accepted the position of Chairman of the Immigration and Claims Subcommittee of the Judiciary Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives.

"Beginning the new term of the 107th Congress, I will be chairing the Subcommittee of Immigration and Claims," said Gekas. "This will give us the opportunity to review all the basic and more controversial issues that surround immigration into our country."

Gekas plans to explore the issues of reforming the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), the practice of determining the status of aliens, revising the oath of citizenship with more modern and less legal language, investigating current immigration law enforcement procedures, visa, and illegal entry problems.

In regard to visas, Gekas says that he supports the use of H1B (hi-tech) visas. "I favor the measure to help American companies pursue their highest potential," Gekas said. "The use of hi-tech visas enables U.S. businesses to compete in the technology arena. However, we must be mindful to strike a balance between helping the business community while retaining jobs for American workers."

"I look forward to the important responsibility with which I have been entrusted in the Immigration Subcommittee," Gekas said. "My experience as a lawyer handling immigration cases gives me a unique perspective with the work that needs to be accomplished."
