A woman, who served as Treasurer of the United States under President Ronald Reagan, will speak at Virginia Tech tonight on the topic of illegal immigration. A flyer promoting the event has sparked controversy over the language it uses.
Bay Buchanan was the youngest ever treasurer of the United States, at 32 serving from 1981 to 1983. Fliers have gone up on the campus of Virginia Tech promoting her talk. The flyers caught the eye of several students, including Juan De La Rosa Diaz, a freshman studying political science and Spanish.
It’s roughly a month before Virginians must decide whether to rehire Democratic U.S. Senator Mark Warner, or choose someone new. During a forum where seniors had an opportunity to interact with Warner's leading opponent, Republican Ed Gillespie, the questions weren't focused on retirement and senior care. Instead, they addressed hot-button issues such as immigration reform, the Affordable Care Act, and strengthening the military.
