About the Petition
11.1 million immigrants live in the United States, hundreds more die every year attempting to cross the border due to strict immigration laws— even children residing in the U.S. for years are being arrested.
The Senate passed legislation providing millions of immigrants a chance at citizenship. Its opponents in the House firmly contest a path that would enforce background checks, fees, and other measures; instead they insist on a "path to legalization", offering green cards to some but not citizenship. Recently, Rep. Trey Growdy even proposed the SAFE Act turning millions of illegal immigrants into criminals overnight.
Some Republicans have begun championing comprehensive immigration reform, but it's time to do more than discuss improvements. Stand with the Courage Campaign and demand the House of Representatives support this landmark bill.
