Storyline


Large numbers of immigrants in the United States set off protests on Saturday, also known as the International Labor Day, urging the government to give nearly 11 million undocumented immigrants a path to U.S. citizenship.

The protesters, gathering around the White House and the U.S. Capitol building, expressed their support for the immigration reform and bill called U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021 rolled out by U.S. President Joe Biden's administration in February 2021.

Apart from Washington, D.C., similar protests also took place in Los Angeles, Chicago and New York. The protesters said that the immigration bill makes no sense without becoming tangible solution, law and policy that changes the situation of the undocumented people.

On his first day as in office, Biden sent the immigration bill to the U.S. Congress as a part of his commitment to modernizing the country's immigration system.

The bill allows undocumented individuals to apply for temporary legal status, with the ability to apply for green cards after five years. After three years, all green card holders who pass additional background checks and demonstrate knowledge of English and U.S. civics can apply to become citizens.

It would also allow immigrant farmworkers and those with Temporary Protected Status, who came to the United States as far back as the 1990s amid natural disasters and other unrest in their countries of origin, to quickly gain green cards.

The immigrants declared that the immigration reform is needed urgently, especially to protect workers in essential sectors, who are vital to the functioning of the U.S. economy.
