Huffington Post: A Mother’s Day Message for Immigration Reform in the Asian American Community

posted by Randall


Mee MouaFor Mee Moua,  Mother’s Day is not only a time to spend with her children, but her grandparents, aunts and uncles as well.

But thousands of other mothers won’t be able to be with their children today, according to a blog written for the Huffington Post by Moua, the executive director of the Asian American Justice Center.  They are separated from them by a long visa backlog and immigrations laws which make it difficult to reunite.

Now some politician are proposing changes to make it harder for these families ever to be together again. They are calling for the elimination of siblings and adult married children as a visa category.

Moua writes: “Family is family, and communities are stronger when families thrive. When Congress presupposes what our families should look like, i.e., the “nuclear family,” they are doing a great disservice to our nation.”

You can read more about her concerns about family unity in the Huffington Post.
