Every person without permanent immigration status deserves a lasting solution to keep families and communities together.
But today, there are about 11 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S. without a viable pathway to permanent residency and citizenship. They provide emotional and financial support to loved ones; shoulder responsibilities in schools, churches, local businesses, and civic organizations; and are deeply integrated into our communities. Many serve as "essential workers" and are at the frontlines of keeping communities healthy and fed during this COVID-19 pandemic.
President Biden has announced his support for a pathway to citizenship for most undocumented immigrants. And the next economic recovery package is a critical opportunity for the U.S. to finally take this step in recognizing and affirming immigrants as vital members of our communities.
Tell the president and Congress: Ensure the next economic recovery package includes a pathway to citizenship for all undocumented immigrants, including essential workers; people with DACA, TPS, and DED; and their families!
