Winning comprehensive immigration reform

Statement by the National Center for Lesbian Rights, Immigration Equality, and the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force


Winning comprehensive immigration reform will require unity, collaboration and a tremendous amount of work. Many organizations are already working tirelessly to make certain that reform, including reforms that include all families, become a reality. Here is a shout-out to one key partner in this effort:

“We, and so many other groups, are committed to comprehensive immigration reform, which includes a path to citizenship for the 11 million, an end to unwarranted detention, citizenship for Dreamers and protections for same-sex couples, among other provisions. This is a historic opportunity and there is broad-based support from a range of LGBT groups, immigrant right groups, and civil rights groups for these critical reforms. Included among these supporters is the Center for Community Change and their inspiring leader, Deepak Bhargava. Time and time again Deepak has spoken out in support of reform that includes the Uniting American Families Act, including his keynote at Creating Change and communications to lawmakers and public statements. Deepak’s commitment is unambiguous and clear. We look forward to working hand in hand with all groups committed to winning immigration reform.”
