The Koch Network is using its immigration initiative LIBRE to back a number of Democrats that are working to find a permanent legal solution for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients.
The megadonor brothers are known for the regular backing of conservative causes, donating millions of dollars to back GOP candidates, but NPR reports that the LIBRE initiative is raising money to protect Democrats who have shown a willingness to work on finding a legislative fix for DACA while also backing stronger border security initiatives.
The article goes on to state the following:
“This stands out. People when they talk about the Koch network … they point at areas like tax reform, where we’ve worked very closely with Republican members,” Wadi Gaitan, a spokesman for LIBRE told NPR.
“Here on this issue, we have Democrats where we want to make sure that their constituents are aware that they are working on a permanent solution for DREAMers and on border security,” he added. “So it certainly is a unique effort.”
One mailer funded by the Koch Network offers praise for Delaware Sen. Chris Coons (D), noting that “more than 90% of Americans want protection for the Dreamers.”
“Thank you Sen. Coons for supporting a permanent solution for Dreamers,” it adds.
