From Farm Worker to the White House

Daniel Garza campaigns to keep the American dream alive

This week we meet Daniel Garza, who started life picking crops with his Mexican American family and rose to be a senior adviser in the George W. Bush administration. Now he’s a leading advocate for Hispanic immigrants. He leads the LIBRE Initiative, a grassroots nonprofit that works to empower the Hispanic communities of America. It advocates for free enterprise, and aims to equip Hispanics with the tools they need to be prosperous.

We also celebrate Immigrant Heritage Month with some of America’s industry pioneers, at the Nasdaq Stock Market. Rosanna Durruthy, the head of Global Diversity at LinkedIn, spoke to the contributions that immigrants, including Dreamers and Temporary Protected Status recipients, make to our diverse workforce.
