Bold Actions Needed for a Bold and Progressive Immigration Bill

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA — Today is a new day for many people, today, the Biden-Harris administration is in the white house and has an opportunity to make things right for our country. In response to the immigration bill being proposed by President Joe Biden which is a very ambitious and comprehensive immigration package that will potentially help 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States, Make the Road Nevada issued the following:

Areli Sanchez, Member Leader for MRNV

“I am a mother of two who has gone through so much during this pandemic, having to juggle being sick with covid and working to make ends meet is not easy. Watching the inauguration gave me a sigh of relief. We have fought hard to be able to see this happen, after going four years through a harmful anti-immigrant agenda that created fear in our communities, we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. It’s time to transform our outdated immigration system into one that is fair, humane, and functioning.”

Leo Murrieta, Director for Make the Road Nevada

“Though not perfect, this legislation embraces the talents and contributions of our nation’s immigrants. Many will remember that immigrants have faced harsh political realities and consequences long before Donald Trump became President. Our families have been a political football for too long, forced to endure as this nation’s political scapegoats whenever convenient for politicians while their very lives hang in the balance. If passed, Dreamers whom we have supported in many different ways at Make the Road will finally get an opportunity to become U.S citizens. As we continue to hear more from our new government, we will continue to keep them accountable for proposals like these to go through Congress successfully, and for issues to be fixed in our current immigration system, which will make it more likely for this reform to be approved. ”
