Immigration Fairness for All

Protect family unity, ensure our public policies address the concerns of immigrant women and children, and end human rights abuses in the name of immigration law enforcement.

 
As part of MomsRising’s mission to advocate for economic security for all families living in the United States, we have reached out to our million members and developed education campaigns to build public will for fair treatment of immigrant children, mothers and families. Our intent is to further a constructive national dialog on reforming our country’s immigration policies so that they reflect our values as a nation and allow for all families to contribute to our culture and economy.

The consequences of doing nothing are devastating to everyone.” ­­ -Tammy
 
“I am the daughter of a Mexican immigrant who was born in the USA. I have friends and family members who are bright high school students yet they feel they should not care about their future because of being undocumented. I think this is a great loss to the USA.” ­­ -Maria

Most of these immigrants have been living in the United States for nearly 20 years and have children who were born here and are U.S. citizens. Tearing apart families is [...]
