Video and Action Alerts from the Rally in Support of a Pathway to Citizenship - Madison Oct 29

Event Dates: 
10/29/21
The federal Build Back Better reconciliation budget includes $107 billion for citizenship for millions of essential workers, Dreamers, TPS holders and farmworkers. However, on September 29, the Senate Parliamentarian rejected including a path to citizenship in the reconciliation package for a second time. The Senate Parliamentarian is charged with interpreting Senate rules and her opinion is not binding. This decision comes despite multiple polls showing strong bipartisan support for creating a path to citizenship for immigrant essential workers, Dreamers, farm workers and TPS holders through reconciliation  Congress can and should choose to ignore the Parliamentarian's decision and deliver on their promises to pass a path to citizenship for millions this year.
Please come out in support of our immigrant siblings and stand up for immigrant justice. Christine Neumann-Ortiz, Executive Director of Voces de la Frontera, said: "President Biden and Vice President Harris promised that they would pass a path to citizenship this year, and that is in danger of being lost." That's why Voces de la Frontera led a Day Without Latinx and Immigrants general strike on Oct. 11.

UPDATE!

Thank you so much to those who were able to come out on a chilly day to support a pathway to citizenship for our immigrant siblings!  If you missed it, you can watch the recording here - https://www.facebook.com/WisconsinFaithVoicesForJustice/videos/1586418625035402

 

Please use the attached talking points and write letters to the editor to raise awareness of this important issue and share your letters with Senators Baldwin and Johnson and with President Biden and Vice-President Harris.  President Biden announced yesterday that he would put $100 billion toward a pathway to citizenship, but we need to keep up the pressure on him and on Congress to get this done!

 

Thank you all for your advocacy and your commitment to justice!
