Family Immigration Stories Campaign
- The Asian American Justice Center is gathering family immigration stories to prepare for the ongoing debate this nation is having on immigration and immigrant rights. From the halls of Congress to the dining room table of average citizens, immigration reform is on the minds of all Americans. Despite this collective recognition that our immigration system is broken, too little attention has been paid to protect and improve the cornerstone of American immigration policy – family reunification. In fact, there are politicians who wish to dismantle the family immigration system and deny families from being together. Family immigration policy disproportionately affects Asian Americans. In 2005, for example, 51 percent of family preference visas were issued to immigrants from Asian countries. Your stories will help show members of Congress the importance of the family immigration system to Asian Americans and the communities we live and work in. Please take a few moments of your time to submit your story by clicking here.
