Washington, D.C. – Representative Zoe Lofgren (D-San Jose) today was selected as Chair of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship, Refugees, Border Security, and International Law for the 110th Congress.

“As Chair of the Immigration Subcommittee, I will work in a bipartisan manner to enact practical, lasting immigration reform that works for our country,” said Rep.

Lofgren has served on the Judiciary Committee since her election to the 104th Congress and the Immigration Subcommittee since the 105th Congress.
