FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 18, 2021
SAN DIEGO Mayor Todd Glorias statement on the U.S. Citizenship Act:
In January, my administration sent a letter to the Biden administration and congressional leadership outlining our Citys 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 Americas 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.
