With the most recent parliamentary advice out, immigrant activists are adding increased pressure on Leader Schumer to deliver on citizenship in the federal budget reconciliation. The groups will ask for the Senate Leader to ignore the faulty assessment offered by the parliamentarian and to fulfill the promise that Democrats made. Activists will deliver postcards to Schumer in this visibility action. Democrats in the House and Senate have agreed immigration belongs in the budget reconciliation, and the American public overwhelmingly supports citizenship, and activists plan on moving Schumer to follow through.

As part of a nationwide effort to demand a pathway to citizenship be included in the reconciliation package, Make the Road New York, New York Immigration Coalition, Center for Popular democracy allies will hold a simultaneous rally outside Senator Schumer’s office in New York.


What: Escalation action outside Hart Senate Office Building

When: Friday, October 1 @ 12pm

Where: Hart Senate Office Building, 2nd Street NE between Constitution Avenue NE and C Street NE

Visuals: Cameras can capture images of protesters marching, chanting, and beating drums outside the Hart office building with a banner that reads, “Senator Schumer, citizenship now.” The postcards that will be delivered are signed by immigrants affected by the need for citizenship and allies who support the issue. Immigrants will share their personal stories of how citizenship will change their lives and how they have worked throughout the pandemic as essential workers.
