🎄Congress must bring citizenship home for the holidays

It’s time for Congress to deliver for our communities, and bring a pathway to citizenship home for the holidays!

You can support this fight with a donation today. 

Yesterday, hundreds of Make the Road New York members joined allies from across the country to march through the streets of Washington, DC. We demanded that Congress deliver common sense policies, including immigration reform, by passing Build Back Better legislation before the holidays.

Negotiations on the country’s infrastructure bill have dragged on in Washington for too long. It’s time for the Senate to deliver. The bill must include:

  • A pathway to citizenship
  • Paid family leave
  • Access to child care and universal pre-K
  • Green infrastructure
  • Affordable housing
  • Good care jobs
  • Healthcare for all

At a press conference with US Reps. Ocasio-Cortez, Espaillat, Bowman, Velazquez, Jones, and more, and other immigrant-led organizations, we called on the Senate to do right by our immigrant communities.

The Senate must disregard the parliamentarian, and deliver on a clear pathway to citizenship. Temporary protections will not suffice. The window of opportunity to pass a pathway to citizenship is now! And Congress must deliver. Support our fight with a gift today.

With gratitude,
