WHAT: Presser for Action on Border and Immigration Solutions

WHO: Rep. Newhouse, immigration stakeholders, & faith and advocacy groups

LOCATION: Capitol Hill, House Triangle

TIME: 1:00PM EDT

MEDIA: Press should RSVP here

Background: 

These groups have long united toward practical reforms to our broken immigration system that:

  • Tackle issues facing our border and strengthen our nation’s ability to manage the border in a secure, orderly and humane manner;
  • Address the uncertainty that dominates the everyday lives of so many undocumented immigrants seeking to contribute to our economy;
  • Solve the workforce limitations in our agricultural sector that are currently contributing to supply chain issues and raising cost concerns.

Fall 2021 polling by The LIBRE Initiative indicates that 93% of voters agree that immigration reforms are necessary and urgent. There is no need for congress to wait for meaningful action.
