“...our country is at its absolute strongest when we prioritize keeping families safe and together.”
Today, we’re launching a new campaign to fight #ForOurFamilies—for every family, because our country is at its absolute strongest when we prioritize keeping families safe and together. For immigrant families, that can only be achieved if we ensure they have a pathway to citizenship, and that is why we are launching this effort by focusing on a pathway #ForOurFamilies.
This campaign is focused on family, because at it core, that is what immigration is all about. Mothers and fathers risking everything to travel thousands of miles in search of a better life for their families, for their children and grandchildren. Immigrant families from across the world have helped strengthen America’s communities and economy for generations, infusing the U.S. with their creativity, energy, and ingenuity. But far too many of these people, including millions working on the front lines to combat the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, are trapped by an immigration system that has locked millions of people in undocumented status. People who have no pathway to citizenship, and are at risk of being separated from the families. And for the last four years the Trump Administration has weaponized our existing immigration system to attack immigrants and separate millions of families, threatening everyone’s safety by destabilizing our communities and economic prosperity.
