WASHINGTON, Aug. 18, 2015  /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum will deliver a major policy address on immigration at the National Press Club on Thursday, Aug. 20.

Santorum, a former U.S. senator who spoke at a Club Luncheon in 2006, will offer his proposals for addressing immigration. He has argued that immigrants, both legal and unauthorized, have taken jobs that should go to American workers.

The program begins at 11 a.m. and will follow the Club's luncheon format, in which Santorum will speak before taking questions submitted by the audience and asked by Club President John Hughes. The event is sponsored by the Club's Speakers Committee.

Santorum ran for president in 2012 and won the Iowa caucuses and several other states before losing the Republican nomination to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

The event is open to all Club members and credentialed reporters. Reservations are requested by clicking here.
