    FL)—US Third District Congressman Frank Lucas Thursday took a break from his Town Hall meetings to attend a roundtable discussion on the economic impact of foreign-born workers in Oklahoma including the Third District. The discussion, held at Autry Tech, took place behind closed doors with a select group of civic and business leaders as well as some legal immigrants. KGWA News spoke with Congressman Lucas following the meeting this afternoon. He said in addition to addressing increased border security and those here illegally, there needs to be overall immigration reform to assist those who have come here legally and are contributing to the state and the economy.

     

       

                                           Lucas   :41   “…so far.”

     

     

    Thursday’s meeting was headed up by New American Economy and the Enid Regional Development Alliance. Information provided states Oklahoma is home to 220,000 immigrants accounting for 5.7% of the overall population. Here in the Third Congressional District estimates show approximately 1 in 25 people or 4% of the population is foreign born.

Tulsa County has had 10 deaths, Oklahoma County five and Kay County has had three. Canadian, Cleveland, Rogers, Stephens and Wagoner counties have each had two and single deaths are reported in Blaine, Bryan, Craig, Creek, Grant, Johnston, Logan, Pittsburg and Pottawatomie counties.

    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Oklahoma City Thunder have added some help for Russell Westbrook acquiring Chicago Bulls forwards Taj Gibson and Doug McDermott just before the NBA trade deadline. Mark Bartelstein, the agent for Gibson and McDermott, confirmed the deal in an email to The Associated Press on Thursday. He said the Thunder sent Cameron Payne, Joffrey Lauvergne and Anthony Morrow to Chicago. The Bulls also will send a 2018 second-round pick to the Thunder. Gibson adds the athleticism and experience to the front line that the Thunder lost when they traded Serge Ibaka in last year's draft. McDermott improves the Thunder's shaky outside shooting. Payne was a promising backup to Westbrook but had missed much of the season with a foot injury. Morrow, primarily a 3-point shooter, lost playing time to rookie Alex Abrines this season.
