NPNA Applauds Immigrant Inclusion in American Rescue Plan

The American Rescue Plan, approved by the Senate on Mar. 6, takes steps to advance the social and economic integration of immigrants into the fabric of American society, but regrettably, continues to exclude many immigrant families from relief.
