Lawmakers sent a dangerous message with this bill that Latino and immigrant lives can be devalued through policies that spawn fear and disrupt our daily lives. We stand with the Latino and immigrant communities and will fight back against SB168.
Mi Familia Vota moves forward with strategic changes concentrated on the Latino and immigrant community. It is time to enter into our next evolutionary phase that more fully aligns our constituent growth and necessities with our operations. We look forward to unfolding a regenerated and invigorated organization.
The House of Representatives has passed the Dream and Promise Act with a vote of 237-187. Together, Dreamers, frontline advocacy organizations, allies in Congress, and our community reactivated the hope of the American Dream.
This week, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced that a 10 year old child died after she entered the care of the Office of Refugee Resettlement. Days after, a 16 year old died in the hands of Border Patrol. Immigrant deaths, as well as reports of separation and abuse, continue to surface.
Today, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) will meet with United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Director L. Francis Cissna’s. We urge members of the CHC to investigate Cissna’s policies and practices that are intentionally preventing immigrants from naturalizing.
The House Judiciary Committee will markup H.R. 2820 and H.R. 2821, provisions of the American Dream and Promise Act that offer a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers as well as those with Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and Deferred Enforced Departure (DED).
A Fourth Circuit court has ruled that President Trump’s decision to terminate DACA was unlawful. President Trump and his supporters are failing our youth and creating unnecessary barriers between them and the American Dream.

The Nevada Immigrant Coalition calls on Senator Cannizzaro to be a champion for immigrant families and pass Assembly Bill 376 to ensure transparency in Nevada. Nevadans deserve a legislative process that reflects the needs of our community.
Yesterday, Nevada legislators held a hearing on SB 538, a bill that would establish an Office of New Americans. We thank Governor Sisolak for spearheading these endeavors, as well as those who stand with us in support of this Office.
Mi Familia Vota is building on its citizenship efforts with “Regálale la Ciudadanía a Tu Mamá,” a Mother’s Day naturalization campaign that encourages immigrant families to give the gift of citizenship. Latino communities and Latino culture, in which mothers are particularly extolled, have been widely attacked during this administration.
