Idaho Dairymen, Business Owners, Ranchers Will Lobby Congress For Immigration Reform This Week

Posted By on Mon, Oct 28, 2013 at 3:35 PM

A unique, albeit powerful, lobbying force from Idaho is winging to Washington, D.C., to take part in what should be a political showdown to push lawmakers—with particular emphasis on pressuring Republicans in the U.S. House—to agree to immigration reform.

As Citydesk reported Oct. 27, the national coalition already includes the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and media titan Rupert Murdoch.

Joining the coalition, which has now been dubbed the Bibles, Badges and Business for Immigration Reform Network, will be a team from Idaho, including:

• Travis Blacker — Industry Relations Director, Idaho Potato Commission
• Dave Cahoon — President, El Centro USA
• Jeremy Chou — Attorney, Idaho Business Coalition for Immigration Reform
• Travis Hawkes — President, Sports Fan Corporation
• Ken Holsinger — CEO, Klowd.com
• Terry Jones — Owner, Rimfire Ranch
• Mark Klompien — President, Idaho Grower Shippers Association
• Ken McClure — Attorney, Idaho Business Coalition for Immigration Reform
• Bob Naerebout — Executive Director, Idaho Dairymen
• Nick Robinson — CEO, Acme Dairy
• Travis Thompson — Managing Partner, Aletheia Capital Advisors
• Ken Wilde — Senior Pastor, Capital Christian Center

The coalition is promising to meet with hundreds of lawmakers representing congressional districts from across the country.
