About our cause Uniting behind 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.

Worth fighting forOur goals for reform

Secure our Borders

Providing law enforcement the tools necessary to secure the border will allow them to focus resources on enforcement priorities such as violent criminals and terror threats.

Family & 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 American families.

Provide a Pathway

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


After creating a pathway to citizenship, develop a simple and effective employment verification system. Establish a streamlined process for admitting future workers to continue to promote innovation and meet our workforce needs.

Hard numbers Why immigration reform matters

Undocumented immigrants are left without a pathway to citizenship.

2.1 million

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

3.22 million

Jobs would be created by 2024 if we passed immigration reform.

$1.2 trillion

Amount immigration reform would reduce the federal deficit over 20 years.

$1 trillion

Would be added to the American economy if DREAMers were given citizenship.

Immigration reform affects everyone Meet people affected by our broken system

Ivan's Story

Ivan has a mixed-status family. His parents are undocumented, his brothers are American citizens, and he is a recipient of DACA. Without immigration reform, families like Ivan's will continue to face separation and live in fear.

Atulya's Story

Atulya came to the United States to study at University of Pennsylvania, where he founded his own successful startup. Without a valid work permit, Atulya is forced to volunteer at the company he founded. Immigration reform will create a pathway for Atulya to get his work permit and keep creating American jobs.

Nidya's Story

Nidya came to the U.S. when she was two-years-old. She is now 28, and still undocumented. She works as a psychotherapist and volunteers in her community, but she has no path to legal status without immigration reform.
