WASHINGTON, DC — On the first full day of President Joe Biden’s term, FWD.us is launching a new ad that will run online and on TV highlighting the urgent need and tremendous opportunity to make meaningful progress on immigration reform centered on a pathway to citizenship for the undocumented, which has overwhelming bipartisan support from the American people.
In the weeks and months ahead, we have an enormous opportunity: not only to rollback the worst assaults on immigrants and the immigration of the Trump administration, but to pass affirmative, transformative policy changes — including giving Dreamers a pathway to citizenship, TPS and farmworkers and other essential workers the same, to rebuild our asylum system and help separated families, to improve legal immigration avenue to the U.S., and more.
This starts with a series of executive actions and bill introductions—bills that we will work tirelessly to get signed into law. Ultimately, that is how we can secure a means pathway to citizenship for as undocumented immigrants, create a modern and working legal immigration system, and more.
The ad, which will run on national cable as well as digital platforms backed by a mid six-figure buy, highlights the new opportunity to build a country that works for everyone. Millions of immigrants are part of the essential workforce that has kept our country running throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, and many of them are undocumented. Now is the time to build a humane, modern immigration system with a pathway to citizenship.
