Queens congresswomen sponsor bill to provide citizenship for undocumented immigrants who helped in cleanup efforts after 9/11


Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Grace Meng introduced on Oct. 25 the 9/11 Immigrant Worker Freedom Act, which would provide citizenship for the nearly 2,000 immigrants who assisted with cleanup efforts at Ground Zero.

Meng, representing the Sixth Congressional District in Queens, called on Congress to act and create a path to citizenship for the many brave immigrants who put their lives on the line after the Sept. 11 attacks.
