Throw another PIIPP on the pile

COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

[A "PIIPP" is a "pro-illegal immigration puff piece". Considering all of the almost identical "news" pieces supporting the Dream Act and similar in various newspapers, I should replace "puff piece" with "puff propaganda".]

Rather than just providing the first paragraph, let's compare it to the May 8 N.Y. Daily News puff piece discussed here. Tell me if you spot any differences aside from the names of those we're supposed to feel sympathetic towards:
Chicago Tribune N.Y. Daily News
Maria Herrera has a 4.0 grade-point average at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, serves her community and lobbies for better legislation. Carlos will graduate with honors from Brooklyn College next month with a mathematics degree. It's a subject he loves and hopes to teach one day to elementary school students.
But because she's an undocumented immigrant from Mexico, she won't be able to use her degree to start a career in the United States. But the former high school valedictorian, an undocumented immigrant from Mexico, will have to settle for working off the books selling ice cream.
"I'll have a degree, but no job," she said. "It's such a waste of talent." Like Carlos - who was featured four years ago in a Daily News article about the difficulties of financing college with no immigration status - undocumented grads have no hope of a job in their learned profession.
... It also drew attention to the Dream Act, federal legislation that would give undocumented students a chance to finish school and become American citizens. ...CUNY administrators are hopeful that U.S. lawmakers will resurrect the Development, Relief and Education for Minors (DREAM) Act. Introduced in 2004 by Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), the bill would allow undocumented students who entered this country as minors to apply for a conditional green card, provided they go to college or enter the military.

The advocacy organization involved in this article is called "Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights". In addition to their activities described at that link, their leader also attended First Data/Western Union's open borders conference where an American was supposedly assaulted. They endorsed the Immigrant Worker's Freedom Ride and AgJobs.
