2021 Virtual National Day of Action

This year, over 700 AILA members participated in National Day of Action (NDA) to urge Congress to:

  • Provide a pathway to citizenship for the thousands of immigrants who call America home.
  • Reform our immigration courts.
  • Hold USCIS accountable for inefficient policy changes and crisis-level processing delays, and to return it to its customer-oriented mission.
  • Reduce and phase out the use of immigration detention.

These are issues that AILA will continue to advance beyond NDA. Read more about each issue and how you can get involved!

Support the Passage of the American Dream and Promise Act (H.R. 6) and the Farm Workforce Modernization Act (H.R. 1603)

The American Dream and Promise Act (H.R. 6) and the Farm Workforce Modernization Act, FWMA, (H.R. 1603) passed the U.S. House of Representatives with bipartisan support in March 2021. To enact these bills into law, the Senate must act and bring these bills up for a vote. Contact your senators today and urge them to support H.R. 6 and H.R. 1603.

Reform and Rehabilitate the U.S. Immigration Court System

America needs just and efficient immigration courts to ensure due process and the success of the entire immigration system. Take action and urge your member of Congress to make immediate reforms to guarantee judicial independence, fairness, and consistency in decision-making.

Reduce the Use of Immigration Detention

AILA supports the passage of the Dignity for Detained Immigrants Act introduced by Representatives Pramila Jayapal (D-WA-07) and Adam Smith (D-WA-09) and Senator Booker (D-NJ). If passed, it would phase out the use of private detention facilities, promote community-based alternatives to detention, and end solitary confinement in immigration detention.
