ACT NOW! CALL YOUR MEMBER OF CONGRESS TODAY TO STOP FAMILY SEPARATION AND PROTECT IMMIGRANTS!
The House of Representatives is going to vote on two harmful immigration bills TOMORROW. Please urge your Representatives to VOTE NO to:
Speaker Ryan’s “Border Security and Immigration Reform Act of 2018” (HR 6136)
Representative Goodlatte’s “Securing America’s Future Act of 2018” (H.R. 4760)
Both of these bills hold protections for immigrants hostage to drastic reductions to legal immigration, and eliminating protections for vulnerable children created by the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA). Also, neither of these bills will completely stop the Trump administration’s inhumane and shameful family separation policy.
CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE TODAY!!

WHAT TO SAY:
My name is _______and I’m calling from [City and State] and I’m a voter in your district. I’m calling today to ask [Representative________ ] to vote NO on both the Goodlatte bill (HR 4760) and the Paul Ryan’s Border Security And Immigration Reform Act (HR 6136). These bills do not adequately protect Dreamers, and they fail to address family separation crisis at the border. They will undermine critical protections for asylum seekers, and unnecessarily gut legal immigration.
AILA has a brief summary of both bills available here: http://www.aila.org/infonet/vote-no-on-speaker-ryans-border-security
The Center for American Progress outlines how both the Goodlatte and Paul Ryan bills harm women and children: https://www.americanprogress.org/issues/immigration/news/2018/06/19/452337/house-republicans-immigration-bills-hurt-women-children/
This year Latinos Progresando celebrated Mother’s Day with over 250 parents, children, and families at the American Heart Association’s Go Red Por Tu Corazón (For your Heart) event. The annual celebration invited attendees to enjoy a morning of entertainment, free giveaways, and a nutritious meal at Mount Sinai Hospital. The program featured a performance from a local youth marimba band and honored outstanding women for their work with Community Impact Awards. Marshall Square Resource Network staff also facilitated a discussion with attendees on the social determinants of health to gauge the health needs and interests of the community.
A special congratulations to Araceli Mena, Marycruz Dominguez, Lourdes Castillo, Judy Idrovo, Karina Gutierrez, Marcy Gonzalez, and Adela Perez from Latinos Progresando for the well-deserved recognition.
