America First Policies To Join Angel Families On Capitol Hill For “Secure The Border” Event

America First Policies is pleased to announce it will join Women for Trump and U.S. Congresswoman Liz Cheney to host a "Secure the Border" press conference tomorrow, February 13, to stand with Angel Families from around the country and support efforts to secure our nation's border. 

The event will take place in Washington, D.C., at the House Triangle (located on the House side of the Capitol's East Front) at 10 a.m., rain or shine. Other coalition partners assisting with the event are Women for America First, We Build the WallAdvocates for Victims of Illegal Alien Crimes (AVIAC), and Angel Families.

"America First Policies is honored to stand alongside the courageous families of the thousands of Americans who have lost their lives at the hands of illegal immigrants," said Erin Montgomery, communications director at America First Policies. "No family should have to endure the pain and suffering that these families have experienced. We cannot wait another day for Congress to follow President Trump’s lead and put the safety and security of the American people first."

America First Policies has invested more than $1.2 million in the fight to build the border wall--a campaign that includes TV and digital ads featuring Angel Moms Michelle Root and Mary Ann Mendoza and former U.S. Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan, all of whom will attend tomorrow's event. The group also developed a real-time ticker that shows an estimate of how many illegal immigrants have attempted to cross the southern border since Jan. 1, 2019. 

The following is a detailed list of who will be in attendance tomorrow. As members of Congress and other leaders RSVP to the event, this list will be updated.
