Photos: This Week in Illinois

House Minority Tony McCombie held a press conference with former Congresswoman Mayra Flores to discuss the ongoing migrant crisis affecting Illinois. Congresswoman Flores won the special election for Texas’ 34th Congressional District and became the first Mexican-born woman to serve in Congress.

Earlier this year, Leader McCombie traveled to McAllen, Texas, which is located in Flores’ district, to witness the border crisis firsthand. “Immigration is no longer just a federal issue, but is affecting all of us at the national, state, and even local levels,” said McCombie.
