TELL CONGRESS AND THE PRESIDENT YOU SUPPORT FAIR AND JUST IMMIGRATION REFORM

Nearly two-thirds of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPIs) are immigrants. The AAPI community is also the fastest growing racial group in the United States. While AAPIs contribute immeasurably to society, our nation’s broken immigration system has created unnecessary pain and hardships for many AAPI immigrant families. Our system must be grounded in the values of family unity, fairness, and equality. We call for a modern, common sense immigration process that:

 

  • Creates a clear and reasonable roadmap to citizenship for all 11 million immigrants who are committed to our country and are Americans in every sense of the word, except on paper
     
  • Ends the separation of families waiting years, and even decades, to be reunited with loved ones overseas, and affirms the importance of family-based immigration
     
  • Reforms laws enacted in 1996 that have resulted in hundreds of thousands of unfair deportations and have negatively impacted Southeast Asian refugees and Pacific Islanders
     
  • Provides equal immigration rights for our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender brothers and sisters

LIFT UP THE VOICES OF ASIAN AMERICANS AND PACIFIC ISLANDERS IN PROTECTING THE RIGHTS OF ALL!

“Stand up for immigration reform that is fair and just.
