For far too long, our laws have denied immigrant families basic dignity and human rights. Children have been separated from their families, parents have been deported after decades in this country, and Dreamers have spent years of their lives in limbo. The Progressive Caucus supports a full overhaul our inhumane immigration system — including passage of the Dream & Promise Act, a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S., due process in our immigration system, and a permanent end to xenophobic travel bans. Congress must also tackle the bloated DHS budget and reimagine our immigration system to prioritize dignity, fairness, and opportunity for immigrants seeking a better life in the United States. Just and humane immigration reform is critical, in keeping with our history as a nation of immigrants.
