Congress is home on recess this week, and it’s a great time to tell our Nebraska delegation this is the year for full inclusion of family and longtime community members!
Congress has not meaningfully updated our immigration laws in more than 35 years, causing unnecessary harm to local families and communities. Over the summer, we have important opportunities to pass positive laws like the Dream & Promise Act, the Citizenship for Essential Workers Act, and the U.S. Citizenship Act to create stability for Nebraska families and whole communities.
Urge Nebraska’s members of Congress to take action to:
- Keep Nebraska families together,
- Create a way for longtime community members to apply for residency and citizenship,
- Support community members who are essential to our nation’s economic recovery, and
- Create stability for whole communities.
