Local State Senator Steve Kettering has been appointed to a new Senate Republican Task Force to address illegal immigration issues. The formation of the committe was announced Friday.
State Republicans are saying that federal officials have failed to take the lead. "Democrats have failed yet again to lead on an issue that will affect Iowans in their communities," said Kettering, of Lake View. "This session you will not see a comprehensive illegal immigration plan from the Democrat majority."
He said the task force will create a "comprehensive package."
