Mayor Carlos Hernandez Joins Florida Leaders to Launch Conservative Coalition for Immigration Reform

What: Mayor Carlos Hernandez and the City Council invite our friends from the media to join us on November 23, 2016, for the launch of Floridians for an Immigration Solution, an initiative of the New American Economy. A coalition of conservative, business, and community leaders from across Florida will come together for this effort, one of a dozen statewide conservative coalitions calling for a responsible solution to the country’s broken immigration system that secures the border, grows the economy, and recognizes that America cannot and should not engage in mass deportations of millions of productive members of society.

Leaders in the Florida coalition include:

• The Honorable Carlos Hernandez, Mayor, City of Hialeah
• The Honorable Rene Garcia, Florida State Senator
• The Honorable Juan Zapata, Miami-Dade County Commissioner
• The Honorable JC Planas, former Florida State Representative
• Arnie Alonso, Chief of Staff to the Mayor, City of Hialeah
• Julio Fuentes, President & CEO, Florida Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
• Mandy Llanes, Chairman, Hialeah Chamber of Commerce
• Rudy Fernandez, Chief of Staff to the President, University of Miami
• Steve Marin, CEO, Marin & Sons
