Include US Citizen Rights in Immigration Reform

Tell the Senate: equal treatment for US citizen spouses in immigration reform

US Citizens are the most neglected constituency in our debate over immigration reform.  Currently proposed legislation for other classes of immigrants includes waivers or exemptions that are not available to US citizens spouses. This petition asks for equal treatment for US citizen spouses. Please sign this petition to help!

To the United States Senate,

The highest priority for legal immigration includes Americans' spouses and children. That isn’t an opinion. Here’s how it works: while there are exceptions, the rule that distinguishes legal immigrants from illegal immigration is that legal immigrants are invited – by Americans.

The only numerically unlimited category includes the spouses of US citizens. It is our right as Americans to marry for love without being forced to choose between marriage and our country.

A failed immigration law passed in 1996 destroyed the balance between the right of a US citizen to sponsor their wife or husband, and immigration offenses that do not rise to the level of crimes. Rather than enact effective steps to stop illegal immigration, Congress persists in pointless cruelty.

Every plan to legalize the undocumented population, including DREAMers, includes 'waivers of inadmissibility'. We want those same waivers to be available to US citizens who sponsor their spouses. Whether it is a narrow 'stepping stones' bill or comprehensive immigration reform, the rights of US citizens must be included.

We want whatever they get.

Signed,

Weigh in on Legislative Priorities

As we look to our legislative priorities when Congress is sworn in January 2019, we would like to pause and gather your input on this 12 question survey. 

We begin with the question of who you think should set our legislative priorities, then walk you through several different legislative possibilities that may come to pass, and end with a question on other legislative priorities that are important to you.
