March 20, 2018
 
The Honorable Paul Ryan
Speaker of the House
 
The Honorable Nancy Pelosi
House Minority Leader 
 
The Honorable Charles Schumer
Senate Minority Leader 
 
Dear Congressional Leaders:
 
A historic moment is upon us and we urge you to seize it.

According to news reports, during negotiations with White House officials over the upcoming “omnibus” appropriations bill, congressional Democrats offered to support a proposal that would provide both $25 billion in border security and a permanent solution for Dreamers. 
 
We believe this is a reasonable proposal – one that should be supported by the president and members of Congress in both parties. We encourage you to use your leadership positions to support its inclusion in the upcoming omnibus appropriations bill.
 
It’s now time to cast aside partisan differences and support a solution that provides certainty for Dreamers, who were brought as children to the United States and seek the opportunity to apply their skills and talents in this country.
 
Please don’t let this opportunity pass.
 
Sincerely,
 
Brent Gardner
Chief Government Affairs Officer
Americans for Prosperity
 
Daniel Garza
President
The LIBRE Initiative

Nathan Nascimento
Executive Vice President
Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce
