Thompson cosponsors Filipino Veterans Family Reunification Act; bill aids Filipino WWII veterans and their families

On Wednesday Rep. Mike Thompson (CA-05) announced he has cosponsored the Filipino Veterans Family Reunification Act, a bill to help expedite immigration proceedings for the children of Filipino World War II veterans who are citizens.

This bill will help those children to be more quickly reunited with their families, some of whom have been waiting decades.

“Our Filipino World War II veterans deserve our utmost respect, many of whom answered President Franklin Roosevelt’s call-to-arms but have long been denied their benefits and the recognition they are owed for their service,” said Thompson. “That’s why I am honored to coauthor legislation that will allow our Filipino World War II veterans to be more quickly reunited with their children, many of whom have been waiting dozens of years for this assistance. I’m proud to work to help our local Filipino-American community and will continue doing all I can to honor the sacrifice of our veterans.”
