AOC among NY Congressional members to back using budget reconciliation for pathway to citizenship


Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was among the New York Congressional members who has called for the use of budget reconciliation to provide a road to citizenship for hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers.

This echoes the findings of a new Ipsos/NPR poll showing that more than two-thirds of Americans support legalization for Dreamers, TPS recipients and essential workers.

In January, the New York Immigration Coalition (NYIC) launched a campaign targeted at key members of the state’s Democratic congressional delegation, demanding a commitment to achieving a pathway to citizenship. The NYIC’s work is part of a multi-organizational and national effort spearheaded by the Fair Immigration Reform Movement (FIRM) to transform America’s immigration system.
