Padilla on MSNBC: Immigrant Essential Workers Have Earned a Pathway to Citizenship

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Alex Padilla (D-CA) joined Tiffany Cross on MSNBC’s The Cross Connection to discuss the announcement of his first bill as United States Senator, the Citizenship for Essential Workers Act.

“If I had a nickel for every tweet I saw, for every Facebook post thanking, praising essential workers throughout the pandemic, you know, let’s translate that not just in a thanks and platitude, but into action. They deserve security in the workplace and the comfort of a pathway to citizenship, they have earned it,” Senator Padilla said.
