Who We Are

American Families United represents a neglected part of the comprehensive immigration debate: US citizens whose families are caught up in immigration law’s failures.  Our members know that when a spouse faces a bar of inadmissibility, the cruel choice is to be exiled – or outlawed.  Many tens of thousands at least, and possibly hundreds of thousands, of citizens are suffering this extreme hardship.

Our Agenda and Request of Organizations

We are asking for your help to ensure that US citizens are not forgotten in comprehensive immigration reform.  Please help us by:
