Feb 18, 2021

(Houston, TX) – On Thursday, February 18, 2021, Congressman Al Green released the following statement in support of the bicameral U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021, which he proudly cosponsors: 

“From attacks on DACA, to xenophobic rhetoric used when establishing policy, to the Muslim ban, our nation’s immigration system seemed to be under perpetual assault during the prior presidential administration. As such, President Biden has been tasked with not only strengthening the American immigration system but also undoing the bigotry that emanated from policy over the last four years,” stated Congressman Al Green. “President Biden has already begun dismantling these Trump-era policies that removed pathways to citizenship, and the bicameral U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021 will put our nation several steps closer to building our immigration system back better. I have long been a proponent of comprehensive immigration reform that provides a pathway to citizenship for law-abiding immigrants, and I believe this legislation will help accomplish that goal.”

Congressman Green added, “I am proud to support and serve as an original cosponsor of the U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021 introduced today by Congresswoman Linda Sanchez (D-CA) and Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ). I look forward to voting for it on the House floor.”
