Immigration Information Session

It’s time for lawmakers to work together and approve a permanent solution for Dreamers and the countless communities they contribute to – this includes the nearly 30,000 Dreamers working as nurses, physicians’ assistants, and other health professions helping the U.S. battle against COVID-19.

 

IMMIGRATION REFORM: MODERNIZING OUR SYSTEM

Throughout our nation’s history – both during highs and lows—we have experienced unparalleled economic growth through immigrants and non-immigrants working together to build our nation and expand prosperity for all. We believe immigration is good, but our system is not. Our outdated, ineffective immigration system should be updated.

Permanent Solution for Dreamers – We support a law that provides individuals with certainty and the ability to plan their lives, including permanent status for Dreamers and TPS recipients, many of whom have lived in the U.S. for over two decades and have been contributors to our communities, and our nation’s fabrics. Congress must address this ongoing issue with a permanent legislative solution for Dreamers and TPS recipients.

 

Visa Reform: Modernize and Streamline Access to Legal Immigration Channels

Our immigration system is complex and inefficient—built on laws that have not been updated in decades. Congress should enact solutions that streamline and increase access to legal immigration channels, strengthen security, accountability, and transparency, and ensure laws are clear, just, and applied equally.

But for this to happen, Congress needs to hear from YOU!
