Statement from NAE Executive Director on Senate’s Budget Resolution

Following Senate Democrats unveiling their budget framework, New American Economy issued the following statement:

“Throughout the course of the pandemic, Dreamers, TPS holders, farm workers and other essential workers have been a lifeline — caring for the sick, keeping our food supply chain in tact, and taking on many more of the riskiest jobs, and now is the time for Congress to recognize those sacrifices and contributions” said Jeremy Robbins, Executive Director of New American Economy. “We are pleased to see instructions to include a path to citizenship for these immigrants in the Senate majority’s budget, which would also provide a boost to our economy as we grow out of the recession. We urge Congress to pass these measures as part of the reconciliation process.”
