VICTORY! Immigration relief for 500K people!

  • Theo Oshiro Co-Executive Director

We are thrilled to announce a major victory in our movement: immigration relief for half a million undocumented people! 

President Biden just announced parole in place, a policy that will grant temporary legal status, work permits, and a pathway to citizenship for undocumented people who have been living in the United States for at least a decade and who are married to U.S. citizens.

This policy could directly benefit an estimated half a million undocumented immigrants throughout the country. It would also apply to approximately 50,000 noncitizen children whose parent is married to a U.S. citizen. For many parents who have worried about not seeing their children grow up, or spouses who have feared being taken away from their loved ones, parole in place will provide welcome relief.

In New York alone, tens of thousands of people could be eligible for this benefit. We are jumping into action with mass outreach, workshops and legal support for our community. As we prepare to serve thousands more to take advantage of this policy, we need your support.

Will you donate $25 to support our undocumented neighbors in accessing this program?

This victory was the direct result of our communities’ years of unrelenting pressure on the Biden Administration, holding them accountable to passing critical immigration reform. 

Ultimately, the power of our movement made this possible – thank you to our members, organizers, supporters, and allies for fighting for and alongside immigrant communities.

While this is a major step in the right direction, we need permanent solutions for all and to fight back against the extremist anti-immigrant hate that has become so pervasive. With your support, we will keep fighting to achieve a permanent pathway to citizenship for all immigrants and a welcoming home for all!

¡Sí se puede!
