Rally for Immigration Reform
Children of Immigrants
Expired event. For reference only.
3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
U.S. Capitol Visitors Center
Join First Focus and advocates for immigrant families, civil rights, working families, and children in challenging Congress to deliver immigration reform that works for children and families. First Focus is committed to this important event, because the time is now to show that getting immigration reform done means getting it right for kids and their families.
1 in 4 children in the U.S. are children ofimmigrants, and in recent years we have seen record-setting numbers in the increase of unaccompanied minors entering the country. First Focus and the Women’s Refugee Commission have developed principles for children in immigration reform that have been endorsed by more than 200 organizations representing children, immigrants, academia, faith communities, and civil rights. These principles were created to ensure that the best interest of children and families are considered as policymakers move forward with immigration reform.
