Following State of the Union, immigration reform advocates in Connecticut hopeful

The Rev. Richard Ryscavage, a Jesuit priest in Fairfield who has been consulted by the White House as an expert on the topic, said faith and political groups are converging for reform. “For the first time, I’m seeing a lot of different elements coming together,” said Ryscavage, founding director of Fairfield University’s Center for Faith and Public Life. He said there’s an emerging consensus on reform in the House and Senate, and the White House is “working vigorously behind to scenes … and I think it will happen.”
