Issues That Matter:
The Guaranteed Refugee Admissions Ceiling Enhancement Act, or GRACE Act, would protect and restore the U.S. resettlement program by setting a minimum refugee admissions goal of 125,000 and increasing congressional oversight over the administration’s operations of the resettlement program.
Ask your legislator to restore the U.S.’s role as a global humanitarian leader and raise the refugee admissions level by passing the GRACE Act.
In recent months, thousands of unaccompanied migrant children have arrived at our southern border seeking protection from the violence, climate disasters, and extreme poverty that have ravaged Central America and beyond. While LIRS is urgently working with our service partners, community groups, and volunteers to address the critical needs of recently arrived children and reunite them with a family member here in the U.S., there is something you can do today to ensure children are treated with care and dignity.
The Protection of Kids in Detention Act, or PROKID Act, introduced by Senators Gillibrand and Cortez Masto in the Senate and Representative Jayapal in the House, would provide a critical layer of oversight and ensure transparency, protection, and accountability for all immigrant children in any type of government custody.
Provide permanent lawful status to more than two million Dreamers – immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children.
It has been over 30 years since Congress passed a law to reform the country’s immigration system and adjust the status of undocumented immigrants in the country. As a result, millions of hardworking families have lived in the shadows while contributing to our economy and communities.
As people who believe in welcome and common-sense reform, we must make our voices heard and urge Congress to support the US Citizenship Act of 2021.
