WHY: AAPIs are stakeholders in immigration reform. Currently, of the 11 million aspiring citizens, over one million are AAPIs living in the shadows. Thousands of Southeast Asian refugees have been negatively impacted by unfair deportations after the enactment of 1996 reform laws. Family unity is among the top priorities for AAPIs – 2 million are waiting on family backlogs and as long as 20 years.
