The LIBRE Initiative Mailers Target Dem and GOP Lawmakers on Dreamer Efforts

(Washington D.C.) – Today, The LIBRE Initiative announced the release of mailers thanking Democrats and Republicans for supporting a permanent solution for Dreamers, and asking them to keep fighting to approve a legislative solution that provides certainty and security.

This mailer is part of a seven-figure campaign effort by The LIBRE Initiative, which includes a national TV ad, digital ads, Capitol Hill advocacy, grassroots mobilization, and educational components in favor of solutions. LIBRE is calling on all members of congress to come together and take action on a permanent, bipartisan solution that would provide certainty for Dreamers and improvements to strengthen our border.

Daniel Garza, President of The LIBRE Initiative, released the following statement:

“Our nation deserves leaders that are willing to take on the big issues facing our communities. This is why we’re highlighting the work of key lawmakers, so Latinos and others understand that they are working toward a permanent, bipartisan, solution for Dreamers and improvements to border security. Sitting on the sidelines while Dreamers and our communities face growing uncertainty is not an option. More than ninety percent of Americans it’s important to enact a solution for the Dreamers and are looking to Congress to lead on this important topic. Failure to change the status quo would hinder economic opportunity, limit the potential of Dreamers, and contribute to insecurity at the border. It’s important Congress and the president seize this opportunity, and act now. Let’s get this done.”

Background Info:
Congress has failed to address the urgent matters at hand: DACA and border security. They should seize the current opportunity and agree on a compromise that solves the matter at hand. A deal is within reach – permanency for Dreamers and $25 billion to enhance border security – it is time to seize it. This first step towards improving our immigration system should address the status of Dreamers and improve our border security, in hopes of avoiding a similar situation in the future.
