ICYMI: Dreamer Campaign By The LIBRE Initiative Gains National Attention

(Washington, D.C.) Yesterday, The LIBRE Initiative launched an ad campaign calling for Congress to deliver certainty for Dreamers and enhanced border security for our nation. Below are a few of the media mentions from across the country:

The Nevada Independent:

“Daniel Garza, president of the Libre Initiative, called on Republicans and Democrats to get to work now that Congress is back in session this week. “Americans expect a compassionate and responsible law that will bring certainty to the DREAMers and security to our nation – that also allows the private sector to respond to economic demands all while upholding the importance of family and community,” he said in a statement. “Failure to change the status quo would hinder economic opportunity, limit the potential of Dreamers, and contribute to insecurity at the border.”

Tampa Bay Times:

“The young people brought here as children – who today are workers, students, and men and women in our military – face uncertainty and worry. Americans expect a compassionate and responsible law that will bring certainty to the Dreamers and security to our nation – that also allows the private sector to respond to economic demands all while upholding the importance of family and community. Failure to change the status quo would hinder economic opportunity, limit the potential of Dreamers, and contribute to insecurity at the border.”

Washington Post:

“Monday’s ad launch is a part of the group’s broader immigration advocacy on behalf of hundreds of thousands of dreamers, who could face deportation as soon as March 5. The LIBRE Initiative is mobilizing grass-roots activists in 11 states and the District, targeting Spanish-language media and advocating on Capitol Hill.

Garza said the group wants to put community pressure on immigration hard-liners to come around on dreamers while supporting lawmakers who are working to resolve the issue. Garza declined to put a dollar amount to the ad buy beyond describing it as a “six-figure campaign,” saying the group is prepared to spend money as necessary to reach a policy solution for dreamers.”
