Examiner.com: @RepMikeHonda & @RepJudyChu Move to Speed Up Family Reunifications

Family Two Asian American lawmakers have introduced a bill that would speed up the reunification of families.  The Family Reunification Act by Rep Mike Honda (D-San Jose) & Rep Judy Chu (D- Pasadena) is designed to clear the backlog of family-based visa applications to the United States.

The bill would also increase the per country limit of visas by 15 percent and outlaw discrimination of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Americans and their foreign born partners, reports Examiner.com.

“My proposed legislation is in line with American family values and with our need to grow our economy and save taxpayer money, Honda said.

“A solution that fails to address backlogs and continues to keep families separated is no solution at all.” said Chu.

   Asian Americans are disproportionately affected by the backlog of visas to the United States.
