ICYMI: DREAMERS CAMPAIGN GAINS NATIONAL ATTENTION

(Washington, D.C.) – Yesterday The LIBRE Initiative, in partnership with Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce, launched a seven-figure campaign calling on congressional leaders to take action on a permanent solution that would provide certainty for Dreamers. The campaign features ads, Capitol Hill advocacy, and grassroots mobilization to inform and activate communities in favor of a Dreamer solution.

Politico:

“On Sunday’s “Meet the Press,” the Libre Initiative and Freedom Partners will air a national broadcast advertisement, calling on congressional leaders to come up with a permanent fix for DREAMers after President Donald Trump announced plans to rescind the Obama-era program last year. The ad splices footage of past presidents, from Bill Clinton, to George W. Bush, to Barack Obama, making pro-immigrant remarks. And it urges GOP and Democratic leaders to revive negotiations to provide funding for Trump‘s proposed border wall in return for a pathway to citizenship for young immigrants.”
