Immigration

Immigration

Immigration policies should promote the reunification of immediate families, meet economic, business, and employment needs, and be responsive to those facing political persecution or humanitarian crises. 

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.
