List of Events: August 6th GOP Debate Watch Parties

Latino & Immigrant Families, Advocates, & Allies Have One Question for GOP Presidential Hopefuls: “Re: the 11 million undocumented immigrants in America, do you have any solution that’s different than Donald Trump’s?”

For the upcoming Republican presidential candidates’ debate tomorrow, Thursday, August 6, immigrant families, Dreamers, advocates, and allies are hosting debate watch parties in their homes, community civic centers, local restaurants, and union halls in key battleground states across the country. 

Join immigrant families, Latino, Asian voters, and allies as we tune in to hear whether the leading candidates will distinguish themselves from Donald Trump, offer any solution to our country’s broken immigration system, and whether they will offer any concrete solutions on issues affecting Latinos and immigrant communities.

 

Spokespeople will be on-hand at the debate watch parties to respond and correct what the candidates say or don’t say on the immigration issue.     

 

The following is a list of events, all times listed are local.
