Anti-immigration group snags legislative director

Posted by Keturah Hetrick on Feb. 21, 2018

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) has lost his first legislative director.

Heather Ham-Warren is now senior government relations manager at Federation for American Immigration Reform, a conservative non-profit aimed at reducing both legal and illegal immigration to the U.S.

Gaetz and FAIR share an opposition to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which congressional Democrats are fighting to extend and many Republicans support. FAIR has upped its federal lobbying expenses since President Donald Trump's election, spending $278,000 last year compared to $167,000 in 2016.
