The Senate has included a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers, TPS holders, and farmworkers in the next budget resolution package!
A pathway to citizenship for Dreamers is overwhelmingly popular with a super-majority of Americans, and a reconciliation bill that includes citizenship for millions of our neighbors will boost economic growth, create jobs and increase wages for all Americans.
This is the critical step forward that we’ve been waiting for for a long time — so we want to acknowledge the perseverance and determination of our lawmakers who are continuing to fight to make citizenship a reality.
Creating a pathway to citizenship is a moral imperative and an urgent economic issue for our country. Right now, Congress has an opportunity to come together and change the lives of millions of undocumented immigrants whose home is here in the United States. As bipartisan talks continue, we are encouraged by this dual-track effort to ensure that legalization providing an urgently-needed pathway to citizenship for Dreamers, TPS holders, and farmworkers passes as soon as possible. The time is now.
A pathway to citizenship is vital to our response and recovery from COVID-19 and to the long-term success of our families, communities, and economy and should be passed as soon as possible. So let’s make sure our lawmakers know how grateful we are that they have kept their promise to prioritize citizenship this year.
We could not have gotten this far without the steadfast determination of supporters like you who have kept the pressure up. Now, our lawmakers must take the next step to protect immigrant families this year, strengthen our economy, and finally send this resolution to President Biden’s desk for signature.
