Join the NH Immigrant Solidarity Network and its many partners for an interfaith vigil at the Norris Cotton Federal Building, 275 Chestnut Street, Manchester to show solidarity with all who continue to face the threat of detention, deportation, family separation.
After a brief vigil, we will walk to the offices of Senators Shaheen and Hassan and Congressman Pappas to deliver an urgent message, that every person without permanent immigration status deserves a lasting solution to keep families and communities together.
Today, there are about 11 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S. without a viable roadmap to permanent residency and citizenship. They provide emotional and financial support to loved ones; shoulder responsibilities in schools, churches, local businesses, and civic organizations; and are deeply integrated into our communities. Many serve as “essential workers” and are at the frontlines of keeping communities healthy and fed during this pandemic.
President Biden has announced his support for a roadmap to citizenship for most undocumented immigrants. And the next economic recovery package is a critical opportunity for the U.S. to finally take this step in recognizing and affirming immigrants as vital members of our communities.
Join us to urge our Members of Congress to ensure that the upcoming recovery package includes a roadmap to citizenship for all undocumented immigrants, including essential workers; people with DACA, TPS, and DED; and their families!
