The NYCLU, in collaboration with the ‘Britta & Carla,’ the LGBT Community Center and the Office of Congress Member Jerrold Nadler, is proud to announce the release of our new short video, “Citizen Non-Citizen,’” which looks at discrimination against LGBT families in our immigration system and the ongoing efforts to reform the system in Congress through the Uniting American Families Act and comprehensive immigration reform.
“Citizen Non-Citizen” highlights the heart-wrenching story of Britta and Carla, a married same-sex bi-national couple living in New York City fighting to stay together in the United States.
There are an estimated 36,000 same-sex bi-national couples in the United States seeking recognition by our immigration system in order to keep their families intact.
Please feel free to share, post, and distribute this video widely as you see fit. To find out more about the NYCLU’s work on comprehensive immigration reform, please visit www.nyclu.org/immigrationreform.
