I am extremely excited to announce that we are currently amidst what could potentially be historic Immigration Reform! This is an opportunity to, amongst many other things, keep families united & provide DREAMERS with a chance to fly. 

After months of negotiations, a bipartisan bill was created by a group of 8 senators popularly known as the 'Gang of 8'. Their combined efforts resulted in legislation which serves to solve a variety of immigration issues such as securing the border; creating a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants; and would implement new visa programs as well as adding improvements to some old policies. 

Fortunately, the U.S. Senate did their part in creating new possibilities for millions of immigrants & their families by passing this landmark bill. Now the future of America's immigration system is in the hands of the House of Representatives. We are depending on them to work together to create monumental change that will improve our current protocols. 

The passing of this comprehensive immigration reform bill would be a long awaited victory for immigrant communities. It would reflect the courage, integrity & unity of the people representing this nation. 

Now its your turn to do your part. Take a stand for equality! Be a contribution and support immigration reform because everyone matters, even illegal immigrants.

      Immigration Reform, Finally

      The Senate on Thursday approved the most ambitious overhaul of the nation's immigration system in a generation. The vote on the bill was 68 to 32, enough to overcome a Republican filibuster and to deliver, as its sponsors had hoped, a strong signal to the House of Representatives that the measure has broad bipartisan support and deserves to be swiftly passed and sent to President Obama's desk.

      America's immigration system is broken. Too many employers game the system by hiring undocumented workers and there are 11 million people living in the shadows. Neither is good for the economy or the country. Together we can build a fair, effective and common sense immigration system that lives up to our heritage as a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants.

      My boyfriend is Mexican and has been here in America for over 20 years. He came here looking for a better life. He is a successful business man, but cannot legally reside here and is constantly worrying about having to be sent back to Mexico. He has lives most of his life here in America and it isn't fair that he has to be shunned by a country he feels he is a part of.

      I am an undocumented child, arrived here when I was 2 years old. We did not come here illegally, we merely overstayed our visas. Now, I'm considered undocumented.
