SAN JOSÉ, CA -- Sam Liccardo, mayor of San José, CA, released the following statement in full support of the Citizenship for Essential Workers Act, which was introduced in the United States Congress today. One of the bill's lead sponsors is new California Senator Alex Padilla.

"Throughout this pandemic, there have been people that have put their lives, and the lives of their families, on the line to deliver our most essential services. They helped our communities keep medical care, food on our tables and services running.

It is time we recognized their commitment to this country with a promise that their American Dream is within reach.

I applaud Senator Padilla for his leadership on this legislation. Along with his fellow Senators and the members of the House, he has championed the needs of our neighbors as one of his first acts in the U.S. Senate. I look forward to continuing to work with him on issues critical to my city and our state."
