Senator Schumer: Please stand up for LGBTQ inclusion and citizenship for the 11 million in immigration reform.
As you read this, the Gang of 8 (a group of Senators) are working to introduce an immigration reform bill this year. Senator Chuck Schumer (D) from New York-- a member of the Gang of 8--has been a longtime supporter for the LGBTQ community and receives funding from mainstream LGBTQ organizations. However, so far, he has been silent on this issue in his talk on immigration reform.
Senator Schumer needs to hear from you to remind him why it is crucial for him to be a champion for the LGTBQ immigrant community the same way we have supported him. The Queer Undocumented Immigrant Project (QUIP), a project of United We Dream, the largest immigrant youth network in the country, made a commitment to make sure that the entire 11 Million are included in this bill and that includes LGTBQ immigrants like me.
