Why It Matters
All people should receive fair treatment under the law, and it is critical for the US to encourage immigrant participation in our democracy.
What We're Doing
We support federal immigration laws that provide efficient, expeditious systems for immigrants to enter the United States. Seeking asylum at points of entry into the United States is part of our legal immigration process and assaults on asylum seekers are unAmerican. The League of Women Voters stands in solidarity with immigrants and our partners in the immigrant rights community. The 116th Congress must take immediate action to pass common-sense, fair immigration policies that end the crisis at our border, ends the separation of families, and provides a path to citizenship.
Building on the League’s endorsement of the reintroduced bill earlier this month, LWV joined allies in urging House Leadership to bring the NO BAN Act to a vote
The League joined, immigrant rights advocates to oppose a COVID relief package amendment that threatened to deny survival checks to mixed-immigration status families.
LWV signed on to a Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights letter urging Temporary Protected Status (TPS) or Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) for Cameroonians.
