"It’s all too common of a scenario, one that we’ve seen time and time again: women’s unique perspectives and needs being overlooked or forced out of the policy debates that directly impact us. Until women make up 50 percent, not 18 percent, of Congress this will continue to be a challenge. This time, women aren’t fully being taken into account in the immigration reform debate. Women are actually the majority of new immigrants arriving and those currently within the U.S.  Approximately 55 percent of the individuals who obtained a green card in 2010 were women, reports the Center for American Progress. Yet, here we are, on the precipice of a final vote on a Senate immigration bill with significant flaws in its design, because parts of it were written without the majority of immigrants, women, in mind."
