ACTION ALERT: Urge Senators to Vote YES on Amendments for Women and Families in CIR!


Jun 20, 2013

We need your support now! Our champions in the U.S. Senate have filed three amendments that would significantly improve S.744, the Senate's comprehensive immigration reform bill, for women and families.

Call your Senators today to urge them to VOTE YES on Amendments 1415, 1337, and 1504.

The time is now to improve S.744 for women and families!

  1. YES to Amendment 1415*-fully restores the siblings category in the family-based system
  2. YES to Amendment 1337*-should Amendment 1415 not pass, 1337 would sunset the elimination of the siblings category (restoring the category) ten years after the bill's enactment.
  3. YES to Amendment 1504-improves the merit-based system for women (please note that this was previously called Amendment 1403)

*Amendments 1415 and 1337 also restore the adult married children category.

Call the Senate Switchboard to reach your senator at (202) 224-3121, or You can find their phone numbers for their offices here.

These amendments will strengthen our communities and provide opportunities for women and families. Tell Congress to pass commonsense solutions that are fair, inclusive and humane. We must eliminate the family visa backlogs, allow green card holders to reunite with their families, and restore the family categories for meaningful family reunification.

What else can you do?

Tweet to @aaaj_aajc #Women Together and thank the following senators for standing up for women! @Mazie Hirono, @SenatorBaldwin, @SenatorBoxer, @MariaCantwell @AlFranken, @SenGillibrand, @AmyKlobuchar, @SenLandrieu, @SenatorBarb, @PattyMurray, @LisaMurkowski, @SenBrianSchatz, @Stabenow, and @SenWarren.
