Frank Sharry Reacts to Biden-Harris Victory
The following is a statement from Frank Sharry, Executive Director of America’s Voice, reacting to the evident victory of Joe Biden as the President-elect.
Congratulations to President-elect Biden and Vice President-elect Harris. Congratulations to the hardworking campaign staff, volunteers, and organizers. Congratulations to the multiracial majority of Americans who made this victory possible.
A special note of thanks and solidarity to the millions of undocumented immigrants, Dreamers and TPS holders, and refugees and asylum seekers. Your resilience, courage and voices reawakened in Americans a deep and abiding commitment to an America that welcomes immigrants and refugees. We celebrate with you today.
Immigration is the original sin of Trumpism. Ever since he came down the escalator in 2015, Donald Trump has taken a wrecking ball to the Statue of Liberty, dehumanizing and attacking immigrants at every turn.
The Biden-Harris administration and the American people are now ready to turn the page on the cruelty of the Trump era and embrace our founding creed of E Pluribus Unum – Out of Many, One.
The long descent has ended. And the monumental task of rebuilding and reuniting America begins.
