The event, set up by the left-leaning nonprofit group Virginia Organizing, was in the heart of the district of GOP Rep. Bob Goodlatte. As chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Goodlatte controls which immigration bills get a vote.

Although he only mentioned Goodlatte by name once - to say that he was not going to say "bad things" about his Republican colleague - Gutierrez blamed the GOP for dismissing the bipartisan compromise that passed the Senate and instead working on bills that are largely Republican-only.
