Migration is a human right. Everyone in our community without permanent immigration status deserves a lasting solution that will keep families and communities together.
It’s time for Congress to pass legislation to create a roadmap to citizenship for all 11 million undocumented people in the United States. This includes people with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which provides temporary protection from deportation for more than 700,000 people who came to the U.S. as children, and those with Temporary Protected Status (TPS), which provides relief to 300,000 people from certain countries affected by natural disasters, war, or other dangerous conditions.
President Joe Biden has announced efforts to legislate a pathway to citizenship for most undocumented immigrants who were in the U.S. as of Jan. 1, 2021—a significant step forward for communities that face huge barriers to gaining permanent status. As we push for change, we must also ensure that any legislation does not increase immigration enforcement or the militarization of border communities.
Tell Congress: Pass legislation that provides permanent protection and creates a roadmap to citizenship for all immigrants!
