2 Minutes Can Save 200,000 Children Of Legal Immigrants From Self-Deportation

Due to green card backlogs and barriers in our legal immigration system, many children of legal immigrants who have been raised and educated in the United States are facing self-deportation after "aging out" at 21. Recently, the US House passed a bipartisan provision within the NDAA that protects children from aging out. The US Senate will vote on this soon.
