Contact your lawmakers (see below) and ask for their support for common-sense solutions with bipartisan support. Ask for their help talking about this to leadership in the House, Senate and White House. Ask for their help co-sponsoring legislation that fixes the green card backlog.
Please raise any or all of the issues when you contact them.
- Green Card Backlog: Eliminate per-country limits for high-skilled employment visas. Provide predictability of wait-time for green cards like other developed countries that does not discriminate based on country of birth.
- Spouses cant work, H4 EAD: Dangerous rule in rule-making process that may eliminate the hard-fought, widely supported H4 EAD. This will mostly impact women, who will overnight have to give up their careers (again) if they want to keep their family together.
- Kids of High Skilled Immigrants: Please treat all kids equally in the current immigration discussion. Kids who came to the US legally with their parents who work in US companies should also have a pathway for citizenship.
- American Born Kids: Provide a stress-free environment for US born kids. Eliminate constant fear of their parents being displaced and having to leave their school in country of their birth to be with their parents.
