Koch-funded group sending ‘DREAMers’ to lobby Congress

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A Koch brothers-funded group is sending young immigrants to lobby Congress to push for immigration reform and money for border security initiatives.

The LIBRE Initiative announced last week it is sending immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally who now have temporary protective status to Washington to meet with lawmakers.

The group says it’s sending around immigrants from states like Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada and Utah to urge Congress to find a permanent solution.

The young immigrants are expected to share their stories and ask lawmakers for a bipartisan compromise.

Congress and President Donald Trump are locked in negotiations over funding for a border wall and avoiding another partial government shutdown.
