We are a nation of immigrants, and throughout our history, our country has always been powered by people who came to America in search of a better life. Particularly during the pandemic, immigrants have been on the frontline working in health care, farming, transportation, and other essential services. But our immigration system is broken and creates unnecessary fear and uncertainty for so many.
Chuck Schumer believes comprehensive immigration reform should be one of the Senate’s top priorities, as well as extending DACA provisions. He cosponsored the U.S. Citizenship Act, a comprehensive reform bill that will create a pathway to citizenship for both documented and undocumented individuals, reunify families, boost our economy, address the causes of migration from other countries to the U.S., and create a smarter and more secure border-management system.
He also supports creating a pathway to citizenship for DACA recipients, or young immigrants who came here as children and have always considered the U.S. home.
