Undocumented essential workers have risked their health, and that of their families, without sufficient protection from the govt.

A pathway to citizenship that allows them to remain safe with their families is critical.

.@FWDus New York State Director of Criminal Justice Reform @rodnationn issued the following statement today after Governor Cuomo delivered his 2021 State of the State address: fwd.us/news/fwd-us-ur… Image
"Since December 1, more #COVID19 cases have swept through New York prisons than in the whole first nine months of the pandemic combined – and tragically, 10 more incarcerated people have died." — @rodnationn
"Public health experts and advocates have long predicted that the state’s failure to reduce our incarcerated population would cost lives and hurt families. Nearly ten months into the #COVID19 crisis, far too little has been done to keep incarcerated people safe." — @rodnationn

Despite facing their own uncertain futures, more than 5 million undocumented essential workers are combatting the pandemic & protecting all of our lives.

A path to citizenship is critical to America’s recovery and must be included in #COVID19 recovery efforts. #WeAreHome
Meet Esmeralda, an essential worker raising a three-year-old daughter. "The pathway to citizenship for me & others like me is the same pathway that will lead us all through America's recovery."

We must restore opportunity and dignity for all people living in the U.S. #WeAreHome
Jesus, a #DACA recipient & Houston paramedic, spent 6 days rescuing people from Hurricane Harvey and now, he is on the frontlines of the #COVID19 pandemic.

“Our families are working hard to keep this country moving forward during the pandemic." #WeAreHome #ForOurFamilies

FWD.us is releasing a new report, "Dismantling #DACA & Terminating #TPS: A Moral and Economic Disaster That Hurts All Americans" which highlights the devastating human economic & political consequences of Pres Trump's anti-immigrant agenda bit.ly/3j93DB7 Image
The new report is the first in a four-part series, which will detail voters’ overwhelming rejection of these policies.

Broad public support for DACA recipients and TPS holders has been galvanized by the courageous advocacy of the people most severely impacted by these policies.
Numerous national polls have made clear that Americans of all backgrounds - including President Trump’s own supporters - are strongly supportive of immigrants and immigration, and even more so now than when he took office.

Pres. Trump has spent the last 4 years trying to deport nearly one million #DACA recipients & #TPS holders, including essential frontline workers during #COVID19. @FWDus explores the public’s overwhelming rejection of these policies: bit.ly/3j93DB7
President Trump made immigration the dominant issue of his first term. Yet polls consistently show that while the President has demonized immigrants, support for immigrants and increased immigration levels grow. Image
