Grover Norquist, founder of Americans for Tax Reform and author of the anti-tax pledge signed by many Republican congressmen, will address the City Club of Boise at 11:45 a.m. Tuesday, June 25, at the Boise Centre.

The deadline to register for the lunch forum is noon Friday. Call 371-2221 or visit to register.

Norquist is best known as an anti-tax crusader, but he is campaigning for immigration reform and will discuss why he believes conservatives should back reform. He also will answer audience questions.

“I believe people are an asset, not a liability," Norquist says. "America is the most immigrant-friendly nation in the world and we are also the richest; that is not a coincidence. Immigrants have been coming to our shores since the Pilgrims landed and they bring with them determination, innovation and the entrepreneurial spirit that built this great nation.”
