“We congratulate Senator Van Hollen on the introduction of the SECURE Act in the Senate, which would allow over 400,000 workers with Temporary Protected Status to apply for legal permanent residency. Many of these people have been here for decades, work hard, pay taxes, raise U.S. citizen children, and provide essential services to our country. We should offer them an opportunity to become full citizens of our country.
“UNITE HERE calls on other Senators to quickly sponsor and pass this legislation.”
—Enrique Fernández, UNITE HERE Vice President of Immigration, Diversity, and Civil Rights
