Immigrants Are An Integral Part Of Nebraska’s Diverse And Thriving Communities

Nebraska has a growing immigrant population. About 7% of the state’s population was born in another country. Immigrants are a critical component of the Nebraskan labor force: 17% of the state’s computer and math science professionals are immigrants, as are 18% of Nebraskans working in the production industry. As family members, workers, business owners, taxpayers, and neighbors, immigrants are an integral part of Nebraska’s diverse and thriving communities and make extensive contributions that benefit all.

we are home

Immigrant Nebraskans are lights in our families and communities. But Congress has not meaningfully updated our immigration laws in more than 35 years, causing unnecessary harm to local families and communities. It’s time for full inclusion of family and longtime community members.

Urge Congress to take action now:

It’s time for Congress to keep families together, to create a way for longtime community members to apply for residency and citizenship, and to create stability for whole communities.

TAKE ACTION
