WASHINGTON, DC – This Monday, July 13, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker will officially launch his presidential campaign at an afternoon rally in Waukesha, a suburb of Milwaukee. National and local Latino and immigrant rights advocates will hold a telephonic press conference PRIOR TO THE ANNOUNCEMENT at 10:00am CT/ 11:00am ET to preview what his candidacy means for Latino and immigrant families across the country, given his track record in Wisconsin and recent remarks on the campaign trail.

Walker has been upfront in his opposition to any form of immigration reform in spite of the gridlock in Washington, yet he offers no solution to our broken immigration system. At the same time, the 55 million Latino and immigrant families in America are just as worried as other Americans about Walker’s record and vision for the economy, education, and health care.
