And about the RAISE Act...

We'll soon share more  about the RAISE Act, endorsed yesterday by President Trump. The bill had been introduced in the Senate earlier this year, and is now being promoted in a transparent attempt to rally the President's base around one of his campaign promises--to address immigration. Not only satisfied with cracking down on undocumented immigrants, the Administration shows its disdain for all immigrants by proposing to cut regular immigration in half and further force the separation of families, all in an "us" vs "them" message. As well, these restrictions could motivate more immigrants to risk irregular immigration in order to be united with and to help support their families.

NNIRR is following this and dozens of other immigration bills pending in Congress. Check out this new legislative tracking tool that NNIRR has created. It will be updated regularly on our current legislation page and gives a picture of the particular legislative issues and trends. The legislative chart is bookmarked so that you can "jump" to bill summaries by clicking on the bill number.

Some proposals, like the RAISE Act, would face serious opposition by both Democrats and Republicans and are proposals that give "credibility" to congressional members among their own constituents. But we cannot afford to neglect these bills; if passed and signed by the President, they could wreak further havoc on our immigrant and refugee communities and on immigration and refugee policies for many years to come.
