MEANINGFUL IMMIGRATION REFORM REQUIRES FLIPPING SENATE AND WINNING WHITE HOUSE
Jump to today’s actions:
For past 4 years, heartless Trump administration’s made mockery of Statue of Liberty.
House Democrats have fought back, passing:
American Dream and Promise Act: pathway to citizenship for DACA and protection of temporary protected status holders
Heroes Act: extends immigrants’ work permits and protection from deportation, grants undocumented immigrant families stimulus checks and health care benefits
No Ban Act: vacates existing travel bans, prevents future ones
Access to Counsel Act: affirms right of detained immigrants to contact attorneys, limits detention length and requires least restrictive settings
These, and overhaul of immigration system, is only possible if Dems gain control of the Senate and end the filibuster, and Biden wins the White House. Biden’s agenda includes:
Immediately certifying and creating pathway to citizenship for DACA and TPS holders
Putting 100-day moratorium on deportations
Within first 100 days proposing legislation with pathway to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants
Rescinding travel ban
Reversing all Trump’s other immigration policies
Raising refugee cap in 2021 to 125,000
To achieve a society that values immigrants, we have just four more days to GOTV to ensure Democrats are in control.
