Dignity Act Proposes to Reform Immigration

Bipartisan legislation would address asylum, visas, and the legal path to citizenship.

Representatives María Elvira Salazar of Florida and Veronica Escobar of Texas revealed a new immigration bill recently called the Dignity Act. The provisions of the 500-page legislation would implement expansive immigration reforms. The bill addresses asylum processing, visa backlogs, and a path to legal status for millions of undocumented immigrants.

Representative Salazar stated, “Our broken immigration system is frustrating Americans, causing people to suffer, and fracturing our country — economically, morally, socially, and politically. A solution is long overdue.“

Representative Escobar said, “These challenging times call for both compassion and action, and the Dignity Act of 2023 offers a bipartisan, meaningful approach that restores dignity to people who have tried to navigate a broken system for far too long. With the introduction of this legislation that Representative Salazar and I have been working on since December 2022, it is our hope that Congress seizes the opportunity to solve the immigration challenges of today and tomorrow.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Representatives Salazar and Escobar as they advocate for immigration reforms.
  • For members of Congress as they consider solutions to immigration issues.
  • For the U.S. officials in border, citizenship, and immigration agencies.
