As our communities are fighting the worst public health and economic crisis in our lifetimes, undocumented immigrants are left out of the federal government’s recovery and aid efforts. Immigrants are essential workers who are helping to flatten the curve by caring for the sick as health care professionals, and by helping to ensure we have access to life’s necessities as food service, grocery store, agricultural, and warehouse workers. Immigrants must be included in the government's response to this pandemic. To keep our communities healthy and well, we need to ensure that any form of relief reaches all of our neighbors.
New Jersey leadership and congressional representatives must ensure all immigrants are included in coronavirus relief aid.
Take action to demand immigrants are included in federal and state disaster relief:
- Tell NJ Leadership: We need a state budget that funds a just recovery for all. Pass S2480/A417 now!
- Tell Congress: Immigrants are essential to our nation. We need a just recovery for all.
