In the midst of national debates over a permanent solution for DACA, NAKASEC and affiliates are deeply concerned about moves from the White House and Congress to cut family reunification or “family-based sponsorship,” a form of immigration that our communities benefit from and rely on, in exchange for a solution. As a part of our national initiative to uplift and protect #FamilyReunification, we are unveiling the #OurDreamsOurFamilies social media campaign where we will be sharing the narratives of immigrants whose families have benefited from Family Reunification. Moving forward, we urge that Congress keep families as a NON-NEGOTIABLE in future debates on a permanent solution for undocumented young people. To force immigrant youth to choose between their safety or their family’s is pure BLACKMAIL.
