CLASP Statement for the Record House Committee on the Judiciary Markup of H.R. 2920, American Families United Act July 27, 2022

CLASP submitted this statement for the record to the House Committee on the Judiciary for the July 27, 2022 markup of the American Families United Act (H.R. 2920). The bill would expand discretion to the Secretary of Homeland Security and Attorney General in removal and inadmissibility decisions based on harm to an individual’s U.S. citizen spouses, parents, and children. The bill would also expand birthright citizenship to certain children of U.S. citizens born abroad. CLASP supports the bill as an important step in improving our immigration laws to promote child wellbeing and family unity.
