HBA-DC Urges Congress to Pass Comprehensive Immigration Reform

Monday, October 31, 2016  
HBA-DC has sent letters to Congressional leaders in the Senate and the House of Representatives in support of legislation that helps achieve comprehensive immigration reform.  Consistent with our mission to promote equal justice for all Hispanics, HBA-DC supports reform of our nation’s immigration laws and efforts to address our undocumented immigrant population.  The letters state that HBA-DC supports legislation that addresses twelve specific issues, including the fair and just treatment of children and adults while in custody, increased funds for our immigration courts to address current backlogs, and a program of earned adjustment to legal status that leads to citizenship for undocumented workers who are willing to fulfill reasonable requirements.  The letter to House leaders is available here and the letter to Senate leaders is available here.
