What do you think of the Senate's immigration proposal?

think immigration

from Ben Johnson, Mary Giovagnoli & Wendy Feliz

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Today's Washington Post warns the Senate against setting up arbitrary numerical goals on border enforcement that must be met before legalization begins. Senator Chuck Schumer says the Gang of Eight’s immigration bill will make the country safer. Advocates around the country are raising red flags around the eventual elimination of the sibling category and the exclusion of same-sex, bi-national couples in the legislation.

In order to promote a robust conversation on these issues and more, the Immigration Policy Center at the American Immigration Council has launched an online space for you to engage with other advocates, academics, attorneys and impacted individuals who are discussing the policies laid out in the bill. Visit and join one (or more) of the conversations.

We want to know what you think should be included in immigration reform. How do we create a 21st century immigration system that best serves our nation’s interests? Visit

We look forward to reading your thoughts!
Ben Johnson, Mary Giovagnoli & Wendy Feliz
