|Today, Congresswoman Sylvia Garcia (TX-29) issued the following statement in support of the Biden- Harris administration’s executive orders and legislative initiatives:|
“Over the past four years our country has witnessed and endured a tremendous amount of pain and struggle. While there is a lot of work to be done to right the wrongs of the Trump administration, today’s executive orders signed by President Joe Biden are a testament to the hard work that lays ahead, and the progress that will follow.
“The Biden administration’s executive order to move towards a more equitable and just immigration system that calls on Congress to enact legislation providing a path to citizenship for hundreds of thousands of our Dreamers marks the first step of many in our path towards healing and growth.
“I look forward to joining this administration and my colleagues in the fight to work tirelessly to improve the lives of our most vulnerable communities and all hard-working Americans. From addressing economic inequality and systemic discrimination, while prioritizing the mitigation of the COVID-19 pandemic, to working with our global partners by rejoining the World Health Organization and the Paris Climate Accords, we are ready for the work ahead.”
