No matter who we are or where we’re from, we all deserve freedom, justice and an opportunity to succeed. Educators, families, and students are coming together to urge President Biden, Vice President Harris, Senate Majority Leader Schumer, and House Speaker Pelosi to include permanent protections and pathways to citizenship for the undocumented immigrants, and their families as part of budget reconciliation legislation.
Yes! Add my name to the open letter open letter on immigration reform.
We need an immigration system that is humane, functional, and just—one that respects all people and maintains America’s commitment to liberty and justice for all. These undocumented immigrants include Dreamers, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients, Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders, and essential workers on the frontlines of our nation’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic that has cost 600,000 Americans their lives and exacerbated racial and economic inequities. Permanent protections and pathways to citizenship for undocumented immigrants should also be included in any legislation that moves forward via budget reconciliation.
Urge your senators to support an immigration process that is humane, functional, and just.
President Biden’s promise “to restore humanity and American values to our immigration system” is the basis for the U.S. Citizenship Act introduced Feb. 18 in both the Senate and the House. For participants in Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Temporary Status Holders (TPS) since Jan. 1, 2017, the pathway to citizenship would be three years. For undocumented individuals in the United States since Jan. 1, 2021, the pathway to citizenship would be eight years—temporary status for five years, then Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR) or green card status for three years.
Email your senators and representative and ask them to support the U.S. Citizenship Act.
