FIRM Action: We Want a Roadmap to Full Citizenship, Leaders Who Uphold Our Values

Washington, DC--After reports broke that the White House was unveiling a new immigration proposal, Sulma Arias, Immigration Field Director of FIRM Action, said the following:  

“We are fighting for progressive solutions that are inclusive and humane for immigrant communities, to create a roadmap to full citizenship for the millions of immigrants and refugees who have built their lives in this country. That includes young undocumented youth and TPS holders. We want to build an America that truly lives up to its values; one that keeps families together and free.

Most Americans are on our side.  

This administration has been relentless in their attacks on immigrants, refugee and asylum seekers, pushing to destroy what we’ve worked hard to build and turning their back on the most vulnerable. It’s no surprise that in 2018 our communities showed up to the polls in record numbers and elected the most progressive House of Representatives in history. We’re ready to do the same in 2020 and any candidate who wants our support has to earn it by denouncing hate and putting forth real, workable solutions. Anything less is simply unacceptable.”
