Koch-funded group to hold forum on immigration in New Mexico

July 6, 2018

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A Koch brothers-funded group is hosting a New Mexico forum to push immigration reform amid outcry about the Trump Administration’s move to separate migrant families.

The LIBRE Institute is scheduled July 18 to hold a forum in Albuquerque that seeks to bring together activists, religious leaders and attorneys. The conservative-leaning group is organizing similar forums in other states.

The LIBRE Institute has held forums around President Donald Trump’s tax reforms and other conservative policies but has been vocal on pushing immigration reforms.

The group also has pushed for permanent protections from immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children despite opposition from some Republicans.
