CHRIS BUBSER WINS ENDORSEMENT OF THE COALITION FOR HUMANE IMMIGRANT RIGHTS (CHIRLA) ACTION FUND
Bubser Pledges to Fight for Humane Immigration Reform
For Immediate Release
January 8, Victorville, CA – Today, Chris Bubser, who is running for Congress in California’s 8th district, was endorsed by The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA) Action Fund.
“CHIRLA Action Fund is proud to support Chris in her run for Congress,” said CHIRLA Action Fund President and Board Chair Angelica Salas. “Congressional District 8 needs a leader like her who will fight to protect the human and civil rights of immigrants living in and contributing to our country and we believe she is the candidate with the heart and passion to fight for progressive solutions. The policies of the current administration towards immigrants already living here and those seeking asylum are antithetical to our shared values, and CHIRLA Action Fund is confident that Chris will be a tireless advocate for the people in her district."
“I’m honored to have the support of CHIRLA Action Fund, an organization that’s worked tirelessly on behalf of our immigrant communities and the rights and dignity they deserve,” said Bubser. “The stakes have never been higher. Washington Republicans have refused to agree to bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform measures and insist on policies that separate families. I pledge to always advocate on behalf of our community and to fix our country’s broken immigration system.”
Bubser has long advocated for the rights of every member of our community. Conversely, one of her top GOP opponents, Tim Donnelly, is the founder of the anti-immigrant California Minutemen - a group of private citizens that bypasses law enforcement and patrols the border without authority.
The 8th congressional district stretches along much of California’s eastern border, and includes parts of San Bernardino County, and all of Inyo and Mono counties. The district includes, among others, the communities of Adelanto, Apple Valley, Barstow, Bishop, Hesperia, Highland, Lone Pine, Mammoth Lakes, Needles, Trona, Twentynine Palms, Victorville, Yucaipa, and Yucca Valley, and Joshua Tree and Death Valley National Parks.
