CHIRLA Action Fund Endorsements for 2016 Election

Los Angeles, CA – The CHIRLA Action Fund, the political arm of the largest immigrant rights organization in California, has issued its final round of political endorsements for the 2016 Presidential Election. This election will be one for the history books and the sheer magnitude of new American immigrant voters will be deciding the future of our country.

Over the past year, the dialogue regarding immigrants has been one filled with hate. To fight this hate back, we are proud to have champions that will stand up for our immigrant community. These strong voices will ensure that our values are upheld and that we continue to find positive solutions to the issue of immigration. The CHIRLA Action Fund endorsement are as follows:
