Protect Everyone Now

Thank the House for Voting for the Heroes Act and against efforts to attack or exclude immigrants

UPDATE: The House of Representatives has voted to approve the Heroes Act and against an anti-immigrant effort to change the bill. Let's say thank you to the Members of Congress who voted for this bill.

The coronavirus has now affected every state in the country, and the number of confirmed cases is still growing. If we’re going to save lives and also stave off economic disaster, we all need to do our part to protect everyone, including people currently incarcerated in our jails, prisons, immigration detention facilities and refugee camps, as they are some of the populations most vulnerable in the pandemic. Further, we all need to practice, whenever possible, social distancing and good hygiene.

The Heroes Act includes aspects of the type of bold, inclusive relief that will benefit everyone in our country.

This bill reduces vulnerable jail and prison populations and provides support for those coming home.

We will all be safer and healthier by ensuring everyone has access to free testing and treatment regardless of their immigration status, and this bill takes steps to ensure this access, too.

The Heroes Act provides more direct economic relief to all taxpayers, and does not discriminate against U.S. citizens who are married to immigrants, as previous legislation did. And it provides a critically important work authorization extension to DACA recipients and other immigrants whose ability to live and work legally has been put further at risk due to this crisis.

More is still needed to meet this public health and economic crisis, including additional actions to safely reduce the number of people at dangerous risk of infection while incarcerated, this bill is a much-needed step in the right direction.
