Immigration Reform

“Right now, more than 11 million people live in fear of the aggressive deportation machinery that rips apart 1,100 families every day. The nearly 2 million people who have been deported in the last five years are business owners, employees, students, church members, PTA parents and community leaders. This moral catastrophe that is devastating our families continues to exist because Congress has failed to pass comprehensive immigration reform. Congress and the President have the power to keep families together. We are working to make sure they make fixing the broken immigration system an urgent national priority.”
– Kica Matos, Director of Immigrant Rights and Racial Justice

We demand a clean DREAM Act that allows young immigrants stay in the country they call home without fear — and one that does so without adding a single dollar to Trump’s enforcement measures. Call your representative now and ask them to stand with DREAMers.
