Urge Your Representative to Reform our Broken Immigration System Now!
There is rare bipartisan consensus on one thing: America’s immigration system is broken. No one believes the current system is a good thing for our country, economy, or human rights. The Senate has already acted; now it's time for the House to update our broken immigration system.
Although the Senate-passed bill is not perfect, it goes a long way to provide a fair and just path to legal status for immigrants, promote policies against human trafficking, honor an earlier deal with Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) authors to include battered immigrant provisions, and provide a long-term solution for growing our domestic STEM workforce. The Senate bill would
- Enact the DREAM Act. Increasing access to higher education is imperative for individual financial security and our nation’s economic recovery;
- Provide a fair and just path to legal status for the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants living in this country;
- Improve the visa process to protect immigrant victims of domestic violence; and
- Create a STEM education fund to help move women and girls into STEM fields.
We cannot let the search for a “perfect bill” get in the way of the good solution to our broken immigration system. The lives of millions of undocumented immigrants and the strength of our nation's economy depend on it.
