Urge Congress to clear the family-based and employment-based visa backlogs, protect and strengthen family-based immigration, and support comprehensive immigration reform that will reunite and keep all families together. The family immigration system in the U.S. has not been updated for over 20 years, keeping millions of people apart from their loved ones as they remain stuck in visa backlogs for years and even decades.
