Sen. Bob Casey Signs on as Co-Sponsor to Uniting American Families Act (UAFA)

by Kathy Drasky

Good news today! Sen. Robert Casey. Jr. (D-PA) has signed on to co-sponsor the Uniting American Families Act (UAFA). That brings the total number of co-sponsors in the Senate to 21.

Remember that August is Visit Your Representative Month. All the info you need to set up a meeting with your Congressperson or Senator while they are in their home state is right here:

Out4Immigration is asking everyone who is in the U.S. and who can set up a local meeting to please do so. We need to make these in-person visits, even if your Representatives have already signed onto the UAFA, to show our elected officials who we are and let them know how discriminatory U.S. immigration laws affect us and our families.

If your Rep is a co-sponsor, be sure to thank him or her, and ask them to talk to their colleagues. Ask them to be sure that the UAFA is included in any discussions about Comprehensive Immigration Reform later this year and is a part of that legislation.

The toolkit to set up your meeting is right here: You can email us at if you have any questions.
