84 mayors, 9 from North Carolina ask for citizenship for undocumented immigrants

In a document signed by 84 mayors from 28 states, including North Carolina nine, they sent a letter to the president Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, pressure Congress to grant citizenship to millions of undocumented people.

The mayors, many of them with a high migrant population, prioritized the naturalization of the so-called ″ Dreamers ″, Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders, essential workers and their families. All this through the conciliation process.

And it is that after the decision of the federal judge of Texas, Andrew Handen v. DACA, the protection of millions of immigrants who could be deported has become urgent.

Among the mayors who support the undocumented are the leaders of all California cities such as San Diego and Los Angeles; plus Tucson, Arizona, Scraton Pesilvania, Denver Colorado, and several others, including nine from North Carolina.

“We all believed in the need to deliver this right to citizenship, as a nation, before the COVID-19 pandemic, but now it is much clearer that we must do this for our country and their families, “he said. Eric Garcetti of the Angels.

“Arizona passed one of the worst immigration laws in 2010.“ It is (a matter) personal for me to take a position on immigration, my parents are immigrants; I am the first generation of my family with a US citizen”Regina Romero said for her part.

Mayors seek that at least 5 million undocumented working in fields such as agriculture, construction, services, food, transportation and many essential industries are supported.

The mayors want support for undocumented immigrants to be accelerated and citizenship to be granted to millions, so they sent the following letter:
