Forum Responds to Senate Bill

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The following is a quote from Jennie Murray, President and CEO of the National Immigration Forum, following the release of the Senate border and immigration bill: 

“We continue to review the bill. On first glance, it includes some positive pieces.

As we absorb the details, we are encouraged that the bill addresses certainty for our Afghan allies and so-called ‘documented Dreamers,’ whose families came legally when they were children but who then aged out of their status. It also appears to include some important and needed reforms to the asylum adjudication process.

“More resources are necessary at all parts of the asylum process. This bill appears to take a step in that direction. The U.S. must remain a leader in humanitarian protection, and people with viable asylum claims must still be able to make them.

“Conspicuous in their absence are solutions for Dreamers, people with Temporary Protected Status, and the farm workforce. No matter what happens with this bill, it cannot be the end of Republicans’ and Democrats’ courageous work together. Americans need, and want, more.”
