ALBUQUERQUE Immigrant youth of United We Dream Action have announced their first round of 2020 endorsements for 11 congressional champions including U.S. Rep. Deb Haaland (NM-01).
These candidates have proven themselves to be true leaders in protecting immigrant youth and communities.

In 2018, immigrant youth and allies of United We Dream Action endorsed candidates, ran ads and knocked on doors to make the voices of the community heard and in the 2020 election cycle, these voices will be heard even louder.

First Members of the United We Dream Action 2020 Endorsement Class:
  • Raul Grijalva (AZ-03)
  • Chuy Garcia (IL-04)
  • Ayanna Pressley (MA-07)
  • Rashida Tlaib (MI-13)
  • Ilhan Omar (MN-05)
  • Deb Haaland (NM-01)
  • Nydia Velazquez (NY-07)
  • Adriano Espaillat (NY-13)
  • Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY-14)
  • Joaquin Castro (TX-20)
  • Pramila Jayapal (WA-07)
On immigration, immigrant youth and progressive organizations have created the “Free To Move, and Free To Stay” platform to shape the future of immigration policy. Every elected official must reject the Trump push to grow ICE and CBP whose sole purpose is to terrorize immigrants and refugees. And over the coming months, United We Dream Action will unveil a multi-issue platform to guide the national debate. 
“We are happy to have Rep. Haaland as one of the candidates endorsed nationally by United We Dream Action for our 2020 endorsement class,” said Felipe Rodriguez, New Mexico Campaign manager for United We Dream Action.Rep. Haaland’s voting record shows that she’s on the side of our immigrant communities and is against our current administration’s racist and xenophobic agenda. We are excited to advocate for her re-election in 2020 because she represents the kind of leader that our immigrant communities need in New Mexico.”
Greisa Martinez Rosas, DACA recipient and deputy executive director of United We Dream Action said, “Today, immigrant youth of United We Dream Action are proud to announce the first members of our 2020 endorsement class. As the next election approaches, United We Dream Action members will get behind candidates like these, with proven voting records and leadership, which points the nation in a new direction to protect immigrants, dismantle the deportation force and advance a wide range of core issues impacting our communities...
