The American Dream and Promise Act of 2021 (H.R. 6) offers a pathway to citizenship for millions of Dreamers brought to this country as children, as well as those with Temporary Protected Status or Deferred Enforced Departure.
An estimated 4.4 million immigrants could be permanently protected under this bill, according to the Migration Policy Institute. Many immigrants have been on the frontlines of the pandemic as essential workers—putting their health at risk to save lives and feed this nation.
The House last month passed H.R.6 with bipartisan support. The Senate should pass the Dream and Promise Act or similar legislation.
Immigration is a hunger issue on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border. An estimated 11 million people live and work in our country without documentation. Many of them experience poverty and hunger. They have been on the frontlines during the pandemic—as essential workers they continue to put their health at risk to save lives and feed this nation.
As a new Congress and administration take office, we have the opportunity to reform our nation’s outdated, broken immigration system.
Dear [ Senator / Representative ],
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
