    The Message

    Dear Members of Congress,

    At this moment, you are negotiating a stimulus package to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and the damage it’s done to millions of families across the country. Senate Republicans are attempting to push through a massive corporate bailout that will exclude millions of immigrants from needed relief in the stimulus package. From food and agriculture workers to home and health care workers, we are all connected and dependent on each other. We must protect all families against the detrimental impacts of the coronavirus pandemic.

    In order to protect all families across the nation, we are calling on you to ensure the following:

    • - Free and accessible coronavirus testing to all families, including Dreamers, TPS-holders, undocumented families and those in detention and prisons.
    • - Ensure personal protective gear to protect healthcare workers and patients.
    • - Stop immigration apprehension, detention, and deportation immediately.
    • - Discontinue the public charge rule that discourages immigrants from accessing government benefits such as Medicaid and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
    • - Expand paid sick leave and paid family medical leave for all workers without exception.
    • - Expand financial and unemployment support for those who are out of work regardless of immigration status.
    • - Ensure that every American can vote safely in primary and general elections by mail.
    • - Ensure the 2020 Census is fully supported and resourced to achieve an accurate and safe count under the new and evolving conditions.
    Thank you.

    At this moment, Congress is negotiating a stimulus package to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and the damage it’s done to millions of families across the country. Take action to ensure all families are protected!
