A message from the AFL-CIO.................


The best way to strengthen our democracy and economy is by empowering working people—no exceptions. However, millions of undocumented immigrants, who are vital to our economic recovery, still live in fear because of our outdated and inhumane immigration system.

It’s time to put an end to this injustice. All people who live and work here deserve a job with full rights and protections. So tell your senators to pass a budget that includes a broad pathway to citizenship.

Call Your Senators

Congress has a historic opportunity to deliver a clear pathway to citizenship for millions of working families, and we expect it to deliver.


Immigrants and refugees have always helped to build, serve and feed our nation, just as they did and continue to do throughout the pandemic. As we prepare for a major investment in infrastructure, we need the jobs created through that investment to be good union jobs and we need all workers to be able to access those jobs, rather than being misclassified and forced into the shadow economy.


It has been nearly 35 years since our last path to citizenship, and working families can’t wait any longer. The Senate has a historic opportunity to extend permanent rights and protections to millions of long-term members of our communities, our workforce and our unions.


Call now to tell your senators to deliver on citizenship.


In Solidarity,


Liz Shuler

President, AFL-CIO
