Women for Common Sense Immigration Reform

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.

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.

We write to you today to voice our strenuous opposition to the Immigration Rule of Law Act of 2015 (S. 534). S. 534, and any similar proposals that weaken the President's executive actions on immigration, are an attack on women and families.
