Please read this week’s Congressional and Legislative Outlook and read about what to watch for this week!

 Trump’s Executive Order: Retreat and Misdirection

This Executive Order does not end indefinite detentions for families and children. We need to keep this outrage and pressure going. Despite being rebuked by nearly everyone, the president issued an executive order that is nearly all misdirection. We cannot allow the barbaric and un-American treatment of those seeking refuge from violence and persecution to continue by other means such as indefinite detention of families and storing these families in military installations.

 House Farm Bill: An Assault on Hardworking Families
 

In a 213-211 vote, House Republicans successfully passed their version of the farm bill, H.R. 2, the “Agriculture and Nutrition Act of 2018.” The bill, which failed to pass earlier in the month due to dynamics around immigration and opposition from some moderate Republicans, undermines the health and economic security of millions of hardworking Americans.

 Developing a bilingual workforce
 

Latinos and the Spanish-dominant are far less likely to keep their money in a bank, partly because of the language barrier. The UnidosUS Latinos in Finance program implemented by Mi Casa not only helps adults establish a career in financial services, but also helps increase the representation of Latinos in the sector. Having more bilingual Latino employees helps the banks provide services that meet the needs of diverse customers.
