Congressman Scott Peters and Captain Scott Adams speak to Latino Jewish Coalition

On Thursday morning, November 7, Congressman Scott Peters (D-SD) and Captain Scott Adams, Commander of Naval Base Point Loma, spoke to a breakfast meeting of the Latino Jewish Coalition of the Jewish Community Relations Council.  Peters expressed some optimism about the prospects for immigration reform.  He talked about the military's rebalance to the Pacific while the US will continue to use diplomacy in the Middle East.  Captain Adams said that the military was 25% of the San Diego economy, but this has been reduced because of the sequester.  He expressed concerns about the long-term consequences to preparedness if the sequester continues.
