About

End discrimination in U.S. immigration law for LGBT peoples

Immigration Equality is a national organization that works to end discrimination in U.S. immigration law, to reduce the negative impact of that law on the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and HIV-positive people, and to help obtain asylum for those persecuted in their home country based on their sexual orientation, transgender identity or HIV-status. Through education, outreach, advocacy, and the maintenance of a nationwide network of resources, we provide information and support to advocates, attorneys, politicians and those who are threatened by persecution or the discriminatory impact of the law.

1. LGBT families have a right to equal treatment in U.S. immigration law

2. Keeping LGBT families in the U.S. is strong economic policy

3. HIV+ immigrants and travelers do not pose a threat
