GALEO URGES CONGRESS TO PASS IMMIGRATION REFORM SOLUTIONS THROUGH BUDGET RECONCILIATION
ATLANTA, GA – GALEO released a statement from CEO Jerry Gonzalez pressing Congressional leaders to continue to address some immigration reform solutions through the budget reconciliation process as the U.S. Senate moved forward the budget resolution early this morning.
“In recent years, we have come to realize and honor the significant contributions of Latino immigrants in the economic growth in the United States and Georgia. Many immigrants within our communities have worked the front lines during the global pandemic and are considered essential workers. At this critical milestone of moving budget reconciliation resolution forward that includes much-needed immigration reform relief for essential workers, we applaud the U.S. Senate for this important first step and urge quick passage,” said Jerry Gonzalez, CEO of GALEO & the GALEO Impact Fund.
GALEO is a non-profit organization based in Atlanta, Georgia, founded in 2003. GALEO strives for a better Georgia where the Latinx community is engaged civically. GALEO contributions are involved in increasing civic participation of the Latinx community and developing prominent Latino leaders throughout Georgia.
