As the Trump administration escalates its attacks against immigrant and refugee families, we are reminded that the family unit is the foundation of our nation. Join us on Tuesday, December 17th for a national call-in day to urge Members of Congress to pass the “Reuniting Families Act,” which would strengthen family-based immigration, improve family reunification, and stop families from being torn apart.

Sample Script: “I’m your constituent from [CITY/TOWN] and I’m calling on behalf of Value Our Families, a national coalition seeking to strengthen the U.S. family-based immigration system. I urge you to cosponsor and pass the Reuniting Families Act, H.R.3799, to improve our family-based immigration system and help families across the nation strive. The Reuniting Families Act addresses the long-wait times for families to reunite due to visa backlogs, increases diversity in our immigration system, and strengthens the family-based immigration system, including by providing relief to families separated by our harsh enforcement system. Families are the cornerstone of our communities and are what hold us together. My community welcomes immigrants, and I urge you to reflect the best of our nation by cosponsoring and passing the Reuniting Families Act.”
