The LIBRE Initiative and Americans for Prosperity Release Immigration Video
(Arlington, VA) – As part of the Stronger U.S. campaign, Americans for Prosperity and The LIBRE Initiative released a new video from the U.S.-Mexico border calling on lawmakers to start working toward an immigration solution which includes: security at our border, provide certainty to Dreamers, and reform our country’s agricultural workforce.
This video was filmed during a recent fly-in trip for grassroots activists to hear directly from border patrol, see the construction of border infrastructure, and hear from a catholic non-profit working directly with immigrants.

In the video, Jorge Lima, senior vice president of policy says:
“Over thirty years our government has failed to address the issues of immigration and reform immigration laws. We are tired of the status quo because it essentially hurts everyone. It’s time for our country to start reaping more of the benefits that can come from a reformed immigration system.”
The Stronger U.S. campaign includes digital ads, events, and mailers calling on Senators to work in earnest on solutions which hold overwhelming support.
