O’Day, Democrat of West Boylston, Hamilton urged minorities to assert influence on policy makers and called for a ‘pathway to citizenship’ for illegal immigrants (i.e. residents in the United States without a valid US Visa).

"Just as undocumented immigrants from Europe, in the person of John Winthrop and William Bradford, and undocumented immigrants from Africa . . . helped to build the old America in the then-New World, undocumented immigrants today are needed to build a new America in this new global world, and we need to say yes to that”, he said.
