Uniting behind meaningful
immigration reform.

We have a once in a generation opportunity to pass comprehensive immigration reform. FWD.us is building a grassroots movement to make sure Congress fixes our broken system.

What we're fighting for.

  • Secure our Borders
    Providing law enforcement the tools necessary to secure the border will allow them to focus on serious criminals and threats.

  • Strengthen our Families & Economy
    Reform would create millions of jobs, reduce the deficit, and allow for innovation to keep the U.S. globally competitive. Reform would also strengthen millions of families.

  • Provide a Pathway
    Create a pathway to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants currently living in the United States that do not have legal status.

  • E-Verify
    Develop a simple and effective employment verification system. Establish a streamlined process for admitting future workers to ensure that we continue to promote innovation and meet our workforce needs.

Why immigration reform matters.

  • 11 million
    undocumented immigrants are left without a pathway to citizenship. That's equivalent to the population of Ohio.

  • 2.1 million
    DREAMers were brought to the U.S. as children and are left without a way to become citizens.

  • 1.4 million
    jobs would be created across the country if we passed immigration reform.

  • $897 billion
    amount immigration reform would reduce the federal deficit over 20 years.

  • $329 billion
    would be added to the American economy if DREAMers were given citizenship.
