NPNA Praises U.S. Citizenship Act & Urges Swift Action by Congress 

Today, Congresswoman Linda Sanchez (CA-38) and Senator Bob Menendez (NJ) introduced the U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021, the immigration reform bill that the Biden-Harris administration announced on its first day in office. The landmark U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021 creates a path to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants, including for those with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and Temporary Protected Status and agricultural workers, strengthens family immigration, addresses root causes of migration, expands access to asylum and refuge, and bolsters due process protections in immigration court. 

NPNA Calls on Senate to Prioritize COVID-19 Relief Over Partisan SCOTUS Nomination Fight

“The Senate confirming Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court would threaten the fundamental rights and livelihood of the majority of Americans. The rushed confirmation hearings represent a crude political move to stack the Supreme Court before it may hear cases related to the 2020 election, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), Temporary Protected Status (TPS), and the border wall, in addition to the cases the court is already hearing regarding the Affordable Care Act and discrimination based on sexual orientation.
