WHIAAPI works to convene community and business partners around immigration reform, highlight the untold stories of AAPI immigrants and refugees, connect advocates and leaders to federal resources, and advance commonsense immigration reform for the AAPI community.

From family members hoping to reunite with loved ones to high skilled scientists and entrepreneurs to undocumented DREAMers, AAPIs are a rapidly growing immigrant population in the United States. In 2011, 25% of the foreign born population in the United States came from Asian countries. Asian immigrants also make up 11% of the 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States, living and working in the shadows, unable to fully participate in our society.
