Ahead of a busy week, immigration advocates and policy makers are building momentum toward the goal of citizenship for millions of Dreamers, TPS holders, farm workers, and other essential immigrant workers. #WeAreHome
"The campaign to win pathways to citizenship for millions is gaining momentum. The voices and stories of those directly affected are driving the campaign forward." - @FrankSharry
"With Republicans making clear that they are more interested in running on immigration next year than in achieving a legislative breakthrough this year, it’s up to Democrats to use their majority to go big, go fast and change lives." - @FrankSharry
"If America is to recover from the moral stain of Trumpism and build back better, immigration reform is a must-have this year." - @FrankSharry

"The ‘Biden Border Crisis’ narrative is losing steam, even in Foxlandia, so Republican lawmakers are resorting to making stuff up and misrepresenting the data." - @douglasrivlin
"It is clear they are not actually interested in border management, protecting unaccompanied minors seeking refuge or genuinely working in a bipartisan manner to craft the meaningful immigration reform the American people want." - @douglasrivlin

The GOP’s post-truth political strategy is about seizing power, not solving problems
"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
