Separated Families, Part 2
Friday’s action supported H.R. 883, which would offer restitution for victims of Trump’s illegal family separation by granting a legal pathway to citizenship for those affected. The Senate has an identical bill underway, S. 271, Families Belong Together Act, introduced by Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT). The bill has been referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Contact your Senators and ask them to cosponsor S. 271, Families Belong Together Act. If Senator Blumenthal is yours, thank him.
If your Senator is on the Senate Judiciary Committee, let them know that you want this bill to quickly be brought to the Senate for a full vote.
