Lawmakers are soon to make a decision that could change the lives of 11 million undocumented immigrants, and it’s up to us to hold them accountable! The opportunity to finally get a pathway to citizenship for undocumented members of our communities in the budget process is here. It’s now or never for immigration relief. Whether you’re an immigrant yourself, the child or grandchild of immigrants, or an ally to immigrants, your support is needed now!
We’re giving it all we’ve got! Are you ready to take action?
The bill’s text is headed to the judicial committee where we have three Florida Congressional members we need to reach out to to make sure they understand what’s at stake.
Click to email Val Demings and Ted Deutch, members of the judiciary committee. And because in the past we have seen attempts to delay this process from Rep. Stephanie Murphy, she will also receive an email.
Let’s continue pushing for this historical win which is now WITHIN REACH!
We invite you to call the legislators to let them know, (put the following on an image of a piece of notebook paper).
“As a constituent of the great state of Florida, I am proud to celebrate the passing of the budget resolution that includes a pathway to citizenship for millions of immigrants across the country. As the House and Senate begin drafting the details of the actual bill, the first stop will be in your distinguished committee. I implore you to hold the line in your committee and do not permit any anti-immigrant policies to be included in the bill. My household will be watching what you do next.”
Miguel in Homestead, Eli in Apopka, Azucena in Tallahassee and 249,997 other Floridians are counting on you. Keeping them as second class citizens is bad for our economy, our values, and our democracy. Take action today!
