The need to build a fair, humane, and functional immigration system in the United States could not be more urgent. Congress must act now — without delay — to provide a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers, TPS holders, and farmworkers. To that end, it’s very encouraging to see meaningful efforts to fix our long-failed immigration system included in the Senate budget resolution package, which has received support from the White House. This is an important next step and vital to our response and recovery from COVID-19 and to the long term success of our families, communities, and economy.
Provisions like a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers are overwhelmingly popular with a super-majority of Americans, including even a majority of Republican voters. The American public has made up its mind and strongly supports getting this done. It’s time for the Senate to act. Call your senator and urge them to support a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers, TPS holders, and farmworkers.
