Immigration reform as a women’s issue

While House Republicans have been adamant that immigration reform is all but dead this year, a coalition of women’s groups is hoping to revive the issue, wrapping it into the “war on women” offensive.

Arguing that women and children bear the brunt of the burden from a broken system, and that women will be decisive in the 2014 and 2016 elections, organizers said that Republicans should reconsider their approach to immigration reform.

Activists include immigration in ‘war on women’

A coalition of advocacy groups wants to make the next front in the “war on women” all about immigration reform.

The new strategy, unveiled Wednesday, is yet another tactic from pro-reform groups to pressure House Republicans to pass immigration reform this year — and punish them if they don’t. And the activists believe that focusing on the influence of female voters could crack the Capitol Hill stalemate on immigration reform.

Two weeks ago, the immigration reform organization We Belong Together: Women for Common Sense Immigration Reform, hosted a panel on the status of reform. The purpose of the panel, which included the organization’s co-chair Pramila Jayapal, Gloria Steinem, Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, and a host of other activists and policymakers, was to share information about why gender matters and to correct distorted media portrayals of what immigrants and immigration looks like.
