signed Stimulus Payment for Anastasia Campos 2020-11-07 15:47:20 -0500

Stimulus Payment for Anastasia Campos

Anastasia is an American citizen who was born and raised in California. She was was denied the stimulus payment simply because she filed her taxes with her husband, who is an individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN) holder.

She formed and administers a facebook group, Mixed Status Families United, that has has attracted over 15,000 members in a few months, and she helped organize and identify plaintiffs for a class action lawsuit  that has raised the profile of the issue.

Please support Anastasia’s right to equal treatment under the law by urging her Senators and Representative to support legislation to fix this problem for citizens like her.

Press Conference with Speaker Pelosi and Senator Schumer:

To Senator Dianne Feinstein, Senator Kamala Harris, Representative Tom McClintock:

Anastasia Campos is a constituent of yours, born and raised in California.

Anastasia filed her taxes with her husband, who is an ITIN holder. Because of that, a clause in the CARES Act prevented her from receiving a stimulus check. This is wrong.

We, the undersigned, support Anastasia, and we urge you to support the passage of H.R. 6800, the HEROES Act, with all possible haste.

Pass the American Families United Act

To the United States House of Representatives, the United States Senate, and the President of the United States:

It is our right as Americans to marry for love without being forced to choose between marriage and our country.  

That’s why the only numerically unlimited category includes the spouses of US citizens.

That’s why, through most of our history, a spouse’s inadmissibility was balanced against the right of a US citizen to sponsor their husband or wife.

That’s why this balance, dismantled in 1996, should be restored.

Today, nearly two million US citizens have been separated, or may be separated, from their husbands or wives. We want these families to be made whole. They are our friends, our neighbors, our families, and your constituents.

The bi-partisan American Families United Act would restore a common-sense balancing test to preserve the unity of American families in the United States.

Please support American Families United Act through each stage of the legislative process, until it is passed into law.
