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.
The League filed an amicus brief with 45 other organizations challenging the Trump Administration’s rescission of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
WASHINGTON – Today, the League of Women Voters CEO Virginia Kase Solomón released the following statement in support of the legislation to protect DACA recipients:
Senate and House leadership announced that protecting Dreamers is a high priority in the remaining time of the 117th Congress, leading the League to urge Congress to follow through and pass a bill. People who are protected by DACA, their families, and their communities deserve the peace of mind to build their lives and futures in the United States.
