RACINE — Congressman Paul Ryan was back in Racine today, holding a bilingual Hispanic Listening Session on federal issues.

Ryan, a Janesville Republican whose district includes all of Racine County, was at St. Patrick’s Church, McCarthy Hall, 1111 Douglas Ave. from 12-1:30 p.m. today, fielding concerns from the Hispanic community on federal government issues.

The focus was immigration reform, where Ryan has emerged as a leader among House Republicans.

The listening session gave people the chance to ask questions about this and other issues in both English and Spanish. It marked one of more than 15 Hispanic listening sessions the congressman has held since being elected, including past bilingual sessions, according to estimates from Ryan’s office.

The listening session was preceded by a prayer vigil led by the Racine Interfaith Coalition, and followed by a press conference with local immigrant advocacy group Voces de la Frontera.
