Reuniting Families Act

The current family-based immigration system has not been updated in 20 years. There are currently 5.8 million people waiting in our nation's family immigration backlog. Spouses separated from each other. Parents separated from children. Despite playing by the rules, they have been waiting for years,often decades.

The Reuniting Families Act would help end this needless pain by reducing wait times for legal immigrant family members. The bill also eliminates the discrimination against same-sex long term partner that currently exists in our immigration system. The Unitarian Universalist Association is a sponsor of the Reuniting Families Act.
