MAYOR OF AMERICA’S LARGEST BORDER CITY APPLAUDS IMMIGRATION BILL CHAMPIONING OVERHAUL OF IMMIGRATION SYSTEM
SAN DIEGO – Mayor Todd Gloria’s statement on the U.S. Citizenship Act:
“In January, my administration sent a letter to the Biden administration and congressional leadership outlining our City’s priorities for a comprehensive immigration reform package.
“I am extremely pleased to see the legislative package released today incorporates many of those key priorities – specifically, providing a pathway to citizenship for our undocumented residents, keeping families together with a streamlined immigration system, and promoting immigrant and refugee integration.
“As America’s largest border city, we are a shining example of how a binational region built on partnership, humanity, and a welcoming approach can thrive. I look forward to continue working directly with the Biden administration and our congressional delegation to help get this effort across the finish line to finally make immigration reform in America a reality.”
