Taxes are a reflection of our collective values and it’s our government’s duty to invest every taxpayer’s dollars wisely. Each year immigrant and migrant communities pay the U.S. government billions in tax contributions to keep our country up and running. The most recent research shows that in 2019 alone, immigrants and migrants contributed more than $492 billion in taxes.
This year, Alianza Americas and our 57 member organizations from across the country call on Congress and the Biden Administration to invest our immense tax contributions to climate resilience and climate solutions. The climate crisis is accelerating and disproportionately impacting migrant and Latinx communities across the globe. We invite you to join us on #TaxDay2023, to call on our elected leaders to take #ClimateActionNow and ensure our tax dollars are invested in protecting our families and our planet.
