Support LGBT Immigration Reform

By Charlotte Robinson, April 10, 2013
GetEQUAL the American grassroots movement for lesbian, gay, bisexual & transgender equality is making a huge push to come out for LGBT inclusive immigration reform. The next few days & weeks are crucial to ensuring that this once-in-a-generation bill is fully inclusive of LGBTQ immigrants. Felipe Matos, Co-Director of GetEQUAL stated, “More than 267,000 undocumented immigrants in the U.S. identify as LGBTQ. Over 40,000 gay & lesbian bi-national couples need legal protections so that their families can remain together. Thousands of transgender immigrants & asylum-seekers fall prey each year to abuse & confusion within the immigration detention system. And many DREAM Act-eligible young people have come out of the closet as both undocumented & queer - making immigration reform & a clear, direct pathway to citizenship not just an LGBTQ issue, but a moral imperative. As final negotiations in the Senate heat up & our elected representatives decide to what extent they should include LGBTQ immigrants in the final bill, we need to do everything possible to push key decision-makers to write an inclusive & progressive bill. Our families, our neighbors, our friends & our community need you more than ever!” There are a few ways to get involved. First take the above graphic & paste it to your Facebook profile & secondly there are events all over the country to take action. For An Event In Your State: citizenship-now.org

It all makes sense. People who have a legitimate reason to request legal residence should not worry at all. It seems obvious that external pressure is taking place to avoid likely 'scammers'
