WASHINGTON, D.C. — Nearly 200 moderates and conservatives from more than 30 states are coming to Washington this week to advocate for targeted immigration reforms.
In a gathering of evangelical Christians Tuesday, meetings with 40 Senate offices Wednesday and a series of panels Thursday morning, attendees will talk about the need for immigration and border solutions this year. Most Tuesday sessions, and all of Thursday’s, are open to media.
In addition, Wednesday evening the Forum and America Is Better will present four “Keepers of the American Dream” awards, to Tyson Foods; World Relief; Maria Gabriela (“Gaby”) Pacheco of TheDream.US; and retired Orlando, Florida, Police Chief Orlando Rolón.
Speakers and some attendees at this week’s events are available for interview.
“Americans are looking for border and immigration solutions from Democrats and Republicans this year,” said Jennie Murray, President and CEO of the National Immigration Forum and America Is Better. “With legislation already drafted, the current Congress can secure our country, help counter inflation, offer greater certainty to employers, and offer certainty to our Afghan allies.”
