Call Your Member of Congress TODAY to Stop Family Separation and Protect Immigrant Survivors
1. Find your Congressional Representative here and Tell Them to Oppose the two pending “moderate” (sic) Immigration Bills that Harm Survivors of Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault
The House of Representatives is expected to vote on two harmful immigration bills on Thursday, Please urge your Representatives to VOTE NO on:
Speaker Ryan’s Border Security and Immigration Reform Act of 2018 (HR 6136) ;
Representative Goodlatte's "Securing America's Future Act of 2018" (H.R. 4760)
Both of these bills attempt to address the Administration’s termination of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) for several hundred thousand young people, but unnecessarily restrict access to the program, make drastic reductions to legal immigration, and eliminate protections for vulnerable children, many of whom are fleeing sexual and domestic violence or human trafficking, created by the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA). Also, neither of these bills will stop the Administration's inhumane and shameful family separation policy.

WHAT TO SAY
My name is _______and I’m calling from [City and State] I’m calling today to tell [Representative________ ] to vote NO on both the Goodlatte bill (HR 4760) and the Paul Ryan Border Security And Immigration Reform Act (HR 6136). These bills will harm domestic violence and sexual assault survivors, fail to adequately protect Dreamers, limit protections existing for abused and neglected children, and fail to address the family separation crisis at the border.
The American Immigration Lawyers’ Association has a brief summary of both bills available here.
