NASHVILLE, TN – As the United States Senate prepares to consider legislation that would limit federal funds to “sanctuary cities”, 2ndVote has released research that exposes direct corporate support for these sanctuary policies.
2ndVote found twenty companies, including several on the Fortune 500 list, that are corporate sponsors for two liberal immigration advocacy organizations: The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) and The National Council of La Raza.
Last July, when Congress first voted to defund sanctuary cities, LULAC passed a resolution during its annual convention in support of sanctuary cities. Additionally, La Raza joined LULAC and numerous other liberal advocacy groups in a joint letter to Congress that urged Members to vote “No” on defunding sanctuary cities.
“Major corporations are helping fund the advancement of policies that are a major threat to public safety and undermining the sole purpose of law enforcement. It’s shocking that these companies would align with liberal organizations that undermine our nation’s laws,” said 2ndVote Executive Director Lance Wray in a statement.
Today, the Senate is scheduled to take a procedural vote on S.3100, legislation that would limit federal funds to cities like San Francisco and Philadelphia for enacting policies prohibit local law enforcement from cooperating with federal immigration officials.
“The active support for liberal organizations like LULAC and La Raza makes us wonder if these corporations even pay attention to what they’re supporting,” said Wray. “It’s time for conservatives and all Americans who value the rule of law to engage these companies for enabling these dangerous policies.”
Below are twenty companies that sponsor LULAC and La Raza help fund their advocacy for sanctuary cities:
