Every person without permanent immigration status deserves a lasting solution to keep families and communities together.
But today, there are about 11 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S. without a viable pathway to permanent residency and citizenship. They provide emotional and financial support to loved ones; shoulder responsibilities in schools, churches, local businesses, and civic organizations; and are vital members of our communities. Two-thirds have lived in the U.S. for over a decade.
It's long past time for our elected officials to pass humane immigration policies that respect the human, labor, and civil rights of all immigrants.
