Obama thanks Miguel Rodriguez for service

Dec. 13, 2013 at 3:56 PM   |   Comments

WASHINGTON, Dec. 13 (UPI) -- As U.S. Director of Legislative Affairs Miguel Rodriguez leaves office, President Obama says he's "grateful for his service, and I will miss his advice."

Rodriguez, who joined the Obama Administration in October 2011, will be replaced by Katie Beirne Fallon, Obama said in a release.

"As the son of immigrants, I know Miguel took particular pride in the Senate's passage of a bipartisan, commonsense immigration reform plan -- something that we are going to see through," Obama said. "I'm grateful for his service, and I will miss his advice and counsel, but I am pleased that Katie Beirne Fallon has agreed to serve as my next director of legislative affairs."

"As a veteran of Congress, and my deputy director of communications, she has the deep expertise and strong relationships required to build on the progress we've made this year and advance my top priority: Creating jobs and expanding broad-based growth and opportunity for every American," Obama said.
