Relative to Immigrant Heritage Month


SR 35, Pan.

WHEREAS, Generations of immigrants from all around the world built our country’s economy and created our nation’s unique character; and
WHEREAS, Immigrants continue to develop and expand businesses, innovate, strengthen our economy, and create American jobs in California; and
WHEREAS, Immigrants fundamentally enrich the extraordinary character of our nation with their unique cultures, heritages, and experiences; and
WHEREAS, Immigrants have been tireless leaders, not only in securing their own rights and ensuring access to equal opportunity but also in campaigning for a fairer and more just society for all Americans; and
WHEREAS, Despite countless contributions of immigrants, we have frequently overlooked and undervalued the role of immigrants in building and enriching our nation, both throughout our history and in the present day; now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the Senate of the State of California, That the Senate proclaims the month of June 2015 as “Immigrant Heritage Month”; and be it further
Resolved, That the Secretary of the Senate transmit copies of this resolution to the author for appropriate distribution.
