Okay so we are in serious financial doodoo and it IS impossible to reach anyone in congress. That said, please do not let go of the momentum (relative as it may be – to years of nothing) on UAFA.
Quote : “UAFA Gains Cosponsors, Momentum in Congress
September was a huge month for the Uniting American Families Act (UAFA) in Washington. Four new Senators and eighteen Representatives came on to the bill, bring our total number of cosponsors to a record eighteen Senators and 118 House Members – increases of 30% and 20% respectively.”
Now that the 110th is seated.. we must all do our part to fight for equality in immigration for all Americans. Yes there are Americans in exile right now, and for many years, separated from aging parents, tocan be with the person they love. American citizens are forced to leave their own country to be with partners as there are no immigration rights for same sex couples.

Where is Senator Feinstein? Why are there so few of you here? All if you received our votes now we need you to help our families.
