TAKE ACTION: Citizenship Roadmap and Deportation Moratorium Now!Over the past four years, Americans watched as Donald Trump used fear and racism to divide our country and expand the inhumane immigration detention system, separate migrant children from their parents, and deprive refugees seeking asylum of their freedoms. We chose a new vision for America. One where we reject xenophobia and are committed to building a modern and functional immigration system that dismantles cruel policies, recognizes the humanity of immigrants, unifies families, and honors our freedom. That is why we must urge the Biden-Harris administration and every member of Congress, to take immediate action to protect immigrants who call this country home. In order to transform our nation’s immigration system, the new administration must: 1) Undo the cruelty of the Trump administration: Starting on day one, the Biden-Harris Administration must dismantle the punishing policies of the Trump Administration, starting with a moratorium on deportations, new arrests and detentions. Trump and his cronies weaponized an already merciless immigration system with 900 executive actions that inflict pain and terror on immigrant communities, and stained our moral fiber. 2) Create a roadmap to citizenship: Millions of undocumented immigrants live, work, and contribute to the United States every day and call this country home. Congress must immediately work on legislation in the first 100 days of the Biden-Harris administration that creates a roadmap to citizenship for every immigrant who calls this country home. It is long overdue and supported by an overwhelming number of Americans from all walks of life. 3) Build a new immigration system that is fair, humane, and functional: The Biden-Harris administration needs to transform DHS, CBP, ICE, and the other parts of our federal immigration system into a just immigration system that sees immigrants as full human beings, treats immigrants fairly, unites families, and welcomes immigrants as new Americans. It is time that we knit a landscape of people from different places and of different races into one nation. Together we can build a country where everyone can thrive and reach their full potential, no matter our race, birthplace, age, religion, sexual orientation, or gender identity. It is time that we make the United States a place where “we the people” includes all of us.

CONGRESS: We Need A Path To Citizenship NOW!Recently, a federal judge in Southern Texas barred the government from accepting new DACA applicants, leaving tens of thousands of potential DACA recipients without work authorization or protection from deportation. In addition, this ruling ordered the DACA program to be partially ended, an immigration program that shields nearly 700,000 immigrants brought to the US as children from deportation. Right now, hundreds of thousands of lives are at risk and now first-time DACA applicants are losing their deportation protections along with their ability to work and drive legally in the United States. For now, current DACA recipients are allowed to apply for renewals. Still, this decision makes one thing absolutely clear: only a permanent legislative solution passed by Congress will eliminate the fear and uncertainty that Dreamers face yet again. Congress must take immediate action and includes a path to citizenship for Dreamers, TPS-holders, and essential workers in the upcoming infrastructure and Senate resolution budget package. Poll after poll has shown that the American public on both sides of the aisle supports a path to citizenship for immigrants and want Democrats to use every political and legislative tool available to them to deliver concrete results this year. Please sign this petition to call on President Biden and Congressional Democrats to deliver on a path to citizenship for millions of Dreamers, TPS-holders, essential workers and families who call America home and live in constant fear of being broken apart.735 of 800 SignaturesCreated by Juan Escalante
