(Arlington, VA) – Today leaders of Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce and Americans for Prosperity joined with Daniel Garza, President of The LIBRE Initiative, in an open letter to Congress and the White House. The letter highlights the importance of permanent legal status for Dreamers as part of any immigration compromise which may be considered in the days and weeks ahead. The letter comes as a growing number of Representatives and Senators are expressing support for a deal that ends the government shutdown with legislation to provide certainty to Dreamers and enhanced border security for the nation.
The LIBRE Initiative and Freedom Partners announced the launch of a Dreamer campaign last year, and have worked with allies on this effort in the months since. This campaign has involved earned, paid, and digital media, as well as grassroots education and Capitol Hill outreach.
