NumbersUSA’s director of government relations Rosemary Jenks added in an email to Breitbart News that the event’s location is designed to put a focus on Cantor and Goodlatte specifically.
“The Monday Town Hall we are co-sponsoring with Tea Party Patriots, Eagle Forum, and The Remembrance Project, is obviously designed to drive home to Virginia Representatives, including Leader Cantor and Chairman Goodlatte, that the voters of Virginia want our laws to be enforced and our borders and workplaces secured now,” Jenks said. “Only after that has happened can we have a reasonable debate about the millions of illegal aliens already in our country. Common sense tells us that we must shut off the flow first. The location of the rally in an area of tragically high unemployment is intended to remind Virginia's Congressmen that their first priority should be the 20 million Americans who want a full-time job but can't find one.”
