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.
Kali Pliego is an American citizen who was born and raised in Rochester, MN, and now lives in Minneapolis where she and her husband are raising a 3 year old son. Kali has a background in community development that she puts to use in her current professional role.
Despite her commitment to uplifting her community, she was denied the stimulus payment simply because she filed her taxes with her husband, who is an individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN) holder.
Please support Kali’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.
To Senator Amy Klobuchar, Senator Tina Smith, Representative Ilhan Omar:
Kali Pliego is a constituent of yours, born and raised in Minnesota.
Kali 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 Kali, and we urge you to support the passage of H.R. 6800, the HEROES Act, with all possible haste.
