Washington D.C. - Residents from across the southern border will be in Washington D.C. this week to share what's really going on in the border region so that lawmakers can be better prepared to make informed decisions about our region. The visit comes as Congress considers spending billions of dollars in taxpayer money on a border wall, and hiring thousands of immigration officers at a time where apprehensions of unauthorized border crossers are at a near-record low.
So what's really going on in the southern border?
Join us for a press telephonic briefing this Tuesday, April 4 at Noon EST / 9 AM PST and get a preview of the conversations community members will be having with lawmakers from both parties during a week of intense advocacy for better border policy.
