Sharing only a common interest in immigration reform, an improbable collection of advocacy, business and political groups met for six hours Thursday in a first step toward hashing out a new alliance.
"Raul Yzaguirre is a Democrat. I'm a Republican. We had John Cornyn who voted against the immigration bill. We had Ciro Rodriguez who would have gladly voted for it," said Lionel Sosa, who hosted the event.
"The next step is for us to begin to craft a message. And within two years, if everything works out, the American pubic will be hearing from us in the media," said Sosa, a San Antonio consultant who formed the group Mexicans and Americans Thinking Together (MATT) to promote dialogue and reform.
Sen. John Cornyn, R-San Antonio, and Rep. Ciro Rodriguez, D-San Antonio, both appeared as invited speakers at the roundtable session held at the University of the Incarnate Word.
