The Senate parliamentarian just recommended that a path to citizenship for Dreamers, TPS holders, and Essential Workers should not be included in the budget reconciliation bill. We are disappointed to hear the news, but we know that this fight is far from over. 🧵👇🏾
We have spent decades fighting for a path to legalization for all undocumented immigrants in this country. We are not giving up now. Democrats in Congress can still keep their promise, without compromising on increased enforcement.
We expect them to use all the tools to get this done. They can do the following:

✅Dems can rework the legalization language and resubmit to the Parliamentarian;
✅Vice President Harris can overrule the parliamentarian;

The recent attention in the media to the pressing issue of #DocumentedDreamers gives us an opportunity to take a bigger view of immigration issues. The issue of kids aging-out is an unintended though not unforeseeable consequence of massive #GCBacklogs.🧵 👇 1/9
Fundamentally, this is a demand-supply and allocation issue. The number of #GC annually given out has not changed meaningfully since 1990. Meanwhile the US economy and labor market today are completely different from back then. 2/9
On top of this supply issue of #GC is the fact that their allocation is not equitable. How long you wait in line, usually boils down to the country you were born in. Not on skills, education, work experience, duration of stay in the US or contribution to the economy. 3/9

Governor @GregAbbott_TX's decision is going to uproot the lives of thousands of children while pushing them into even more sub-standard conditions.…
@GregAbbott_TX This order is clearly another brazen attempt by Abbott to align himself with the former president, who endorsed his reelection yesterday, and demonize immigrants.

Meanwhile, Abbott is doing nothing to solve the problem of the Texas foster care system.
@GregAbbott_TX Abbott is using facilities housing migrant children as a diversion from his terrible governing.

If he cared about children in TX then he would spend money on child welfare rather than pouring tons of $ into an unnecessary armed response at the border to children seeking asylum.

Please share. We are thrilled to announce The Promise was acquired by Netflix for streaming starting 8/8. Thank you ALL for your support & we know it will now raise even more awareness. Thanks to the unparalleled generosity of our dear friend & mentor Kirk Kerkorian, our team Image
