Aguilar: “This is necessary—it’s politically smart—and it’s the right thing to do.”
Washington, D.C. – Today American Principles in Action released a five-point conservative immigration action plan for Congress to finally pass immigration reform. The plan was released as part of APIA’s first Conservative Immigration Forum, which took place this morning at the Alan P. Kirby, Jr. Center for Constitutional Studies and Citizenship in Washington, D.C.
The plan, which includes a specific timeline and detailed policy proposals, can be found here.
Alfonso Aguilar, Director of APIA’s Latino Partnership, released the following statement:
“Immigration reform has stalled in this Congress, but it’s time to bring the issue back to the forefront. The American people and the Latino community want to see this issue addressed, or at least see us moving toward a resolution, and honestly we all deserve to have it resolved. Today we released a plan that provides a blueprint for Congress to finally pass something substantive that will secure the border, fix our broken visa system, and provide a path to legal status for undocumented immigrants.”
“This is necessary—it’s politically smart—and it’s the right thing to do. We look forward to working with Members of Congress in the coming weeks to introduce legislation and begin our piecemeal approach to passing immigration reform.”
Alfonso Aguilar was joined by several renowned conservative leaders at the Forum, including Lila Rose of Live Action, Matt Schlapp of the American Conservative Union, U.S. Rep. Raul Labrador (R-Idaho), Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin), Alex Nowrasteh of the Cato Institute, Terry Schilling of American Principles in Action, and Niger Innis of TheTeaParty.net.
