Let your Representative and Senators know Nebraskans want a common-sense and up-to-date immigration system that provides a strong foundation for our families, our communities, our economy and our future. Creating a clear and attainable process for citizenship for aspiring citizens:

  • Reflects our Nebraska values of humanity, family, and common sense.

  • Keeps children from suffering under our current system that separates kids from parents and leaves many in fear of having their family broken apart.

  • Protects workers and strengthens our economy, cutting $200 billion from our federal deficit in the first decade and $700 billion in the following 10 years.

We hope you can make it out to one of these events and speak directly to your Representative.  Don’t forget to make a phone call to their offices this week as well. Your voice makes a great difference!
