AILA Stands with Immigrants Campaign

Pushing Back on Myths Regarding Family Immigration

Help us push back on the Trump administration's attack on the family-based immigration system with the following tweets. You can use the hashtags #ValueOurFamilies and #NoFamilyBan in addition to #AILAStandsWithImmigrants.

  • Family is an American value, but the Trump administration is seeking to drastically cut family immigration. Tell Congress to #ValueOurFamilies.
  • The White House proposes to end family sponsorship of siblings & adult children. The US must continue to #ValueOurFamilies. #NoFamilyBan
  • Immigrants who come as family are workers, entrepreneurs, caregivers, teachers, and neighbors. #ValueOurFamilies #NoFamilyBan
  • All work is valuable. The latest attacks on #immigration ignore the fact that our economy needs ALL kinds of workers. #ValueOurFamilies #NoFamilyBan

Protect Temporary Protected Status (TPS)

Sample tweets, you can use the hashtag #ProtectTPS:

  • Congress, don't let Trump change the rules in the middle of the game for TPS holders! #ProtectTPS
  • In 25 years, TPS holders have created businesses, paid U.S. taxes, and raised citizen children. Don't leave them unprotected! #ProtectTPS

Sample Facebook posts:

  • Congress established Temporary Protected Status (TPS) to provide work permits and defer deportation for immigrants who cannot safely return to their home countries because of civil strife or natural disaster. Now TPS is under attack from the Trump administration. TPS is a proven program and lets immigrants contribute to this country's economy and society. Immigrants help build up this country. That's why we say #ProtectTPS.
  • TPS beneficiaries participate in the workforce at levels at least 20 points higher, on average, than the U.S. population. The United States needs these hard workers and should not turn them away. #ProtectTPS
  • The more than 300,000 TPS holders in this country are its essential caretakers: they tend to our children, they clean our homes and offices, they prepare our food, they make our clothes. Without their labor, our society would suffer. #ProtectTPS
