We write to you today to voice our opposition to four bills scheduled for mark up in the House Judiciary Committee this week: H.R. 1148, the Michael Davis, Jr. in Honor of State and Local Law Enforcement Act; H.R. 1149, the Protection of Children Act of 2015; H.R. 1153, the Asylum Reform and Border Protection Act of 2015; and H.R. 1147, the Legal Workforce Act. These bills are an attack on immigrant women. Women and children represent 75% of immigrants in our country today and there are an estimated 5 million undocumented women living in the U.S. Immigrant women fuel our economy, power our communities and grow our families.
Immigration reform is a women's issue! We Belong Together unites women from all walks of life in the fight for common sense reform that treats women and children fairly.
