Immigration Edition.

The Biden-Harris immigration bill, with a roadmap to citizenship, is being spearheaded in the US Senate by Sen. Bob Menéndez under the title US Citizenship Act of 2021. The senator explains key components of the package in a news conference. Also, as a federal judge temporarily halts President Biden’s deportation pause, a well-known sanctuary activist talks about what this deportation ban means for her plans to continue seeking protection from deportation at a Denver church. Finally, advocates urge Congress to use the tool of budget reconciliation to include a fast-track path to legalization for essential workers working on the frontlines of the pandemic, Dreamers and TPS holders. A policy analist explains how this legislative resource works.
