SUPPORT BILL FOR INDONESIANS

HR 3590 “The Indonesian Family Refugee Protection Act" enables all Indonesians who entered the U.S. between 1997 and 2002 to apply for asylum, without the limitation of the one-year deadline. It would give every family in our care a fair chance to stay here. Frank Pallone (D-NJ) and Carolyn Malloney (D-NY) are the main proponents, and 17 representatives have signed on.
