Today’s essential workers hearing kicks off next stage in immigration debate focused on delivering citizenship for millions
"Immigrant workers are essential workers and it’s time our country values their work, sacrifices, and contributions by providing a path to citizenship. We cannot continue to simultaneously treat essential workers as both essential and deportable." - @douglasrivlin #WeAreHome
"In his short time in the Senate, @SenAlexPadilla has taken an important leadership role on immigration and as Chair of the Immigration Subcommittee." - @douglasrivlin
"Today’s hearing marks a new phase in the debate that underscores Democrats’ consensus that this is the year to finally achieve a popular breakthrough on citizenship and for Democrats to use their majority to change lives, strengthen the country." - @douglasrivlin

The GOP’s post-truth political strategy is about seizing power, not solving problems Image
"The Republican Party is tripping over itself to stay in Donald Trump’s good graces. They have effectively sided with the insurrectionists who stormed the Capitol by taking up the Big Lie as a governing strategy, sacrificing the truth." - @FrankSharry
"The post-truth politics of today’s Republican Party impedes the important and timely work on the real problems we face as a nation." - @FrankSharry

Yesterday, the Arizona House of Representatives passed legislation to place a referendum on the 2022 ballot that would make undocumented students eligible for in-state tuition rates at state universities. Arizona is shifting from red to purple to blue.
"The battle between hope and fear is on display in Arizona."- @FrankSharry
"Young activists are hoping and fighting for a chance to attend college so they can contribute to the dynamism of their home state. Meanwhile, GOP politicians are stirring fear of ‘the other’ in hopes of clinging to power." - @FrankSharry

A few weeks ago, Republicans were talking incessantly about the “Biden border crisis.” So now that the border is getting under control, will they change their tune? Of course not. Here are how thought leaders are sizing up the situation: Image
"The ‘border crisis’ narrative was always overblown. 25,000 kids fleeing violence in Central America and seeking safety in a nation that describes itself as a beacon of hope is not a crisis." - @FrankSharry
"Stephen Miller and his cronies set up the narrative. The right-wing media ecosystem pumped it up. And the too many in the mainstream media fell for it." - @FrankSharry

Democrats - you have a path to victory on immigration. Use it.
"Nothing in life is certain except death, taxes, and @JohnCornyn getting to ‘no’ on immigration reform - especially when it counts. Indulging Sen. @JohnCornyn and honoring his timetable is a legislative death sentence." - @FrankSharry
"Americans elected a Democratic President and Democratic majorities in both chambers of Congress to do big things, to tackle challenges left unaddressed for too long, and to effect change that people experience in their daily lives." - @FrankSharry

After months of silence and inaction, Secretary Mayorkas says DHS considering TPS for Haiti, Cameroon, and Mauritania
"It is well beyond time for the Biden Administration to redesignate Haiti and create new designations for Cameroon and Mauritania for TPS." - @douglasrivlin
"The chorus of Members of Congress, leaders, officials, advocates and TPS holders relentlessly screaming for the Biden administration to take action to protect immigrants and utilize TPS should be taken very seriously." - @douglasrivlin
