Washington- The Senate Parliamentarian has officially ruled on immigration, deciding against the first of several different options to provide permanent residency for TPS Holders, Dreamers, Farmworkers and Essential workers through budget reconciliation.

In response to this news, the National TPS Alliance will be marching from Freedom Plaza to Capitol hill in Washington DC to call on Democratic leadership to ensure legalizations for millions, including TPS families via the budget reconciliation process:

The fight for our permanent residency and political equality through reconciliation is still far from finished! Tomorrow we’ll be marching the streets of Washington DC and our message will be clear, Senate Democrats must reaffirm their commitment to our families and look for any alternative to guarantee permanent residency for TPS holders, Dreamers, Farmworkers and essential workers this year. We will not be divided, we refuse to be used as political pawns, we deserve the right to a seat at the negotiation table, and our contributions to this country have earned us the right to remain permanently. Our Lives Are Not Temporary! We need Residency NOW!”-Claudia Lainez, TPS Holder, Regional Organizer for the National TPS Alliance
