Immigrant essential workers have kept our country running, while others have been privileged enough to quarantine during the pandemic. Many, on account of immigration status, have had no other choice but to put their lives on the line and continue working. Yet, they still do not qualify for COVID relief or stimulus benefits. It is time for Congress to pass legislation that will include ALL immigrants in stimulus negotiations and create a pathway to citizenship. It is what is fair. Immigrants deserve the benefits they have earned.
For this series, I am photographing immigrant essential workers, showcasing their work and contributions to our community.
