On the Anniversary of the Senate Immigration Bill

A year is a long time to wait. The Sen­ate passed an immi­gra­tion bill a year ago today, but the House has yet to act to make vital changes to our bro­ken immi­gra­tion sys­tem. Mean­while, South Asian and oth­er immi­grants are lan­guish­ing in the fam­i­ly and employ­ment visa back­logs, endur­ing deten­tion and depor­ta­tion, or liv­ing in the shad­ows of our soci­ety due to their undoc­u­ment­ed sta­tus. Lead­er­ship in the House has changed, and it’s time for the House to lead. Tell the House that a year is too long to wait and that action is need­ed today on immi­gra­tion.
