House passes immigration bills providing citizenship for DACA and farmworkers
On March 18, 2021, House Democrats passed a pair of immigration bills that would create a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers and some migrant farm workers, taking a piecemeal approach as President Biden’s major immigration package looks increasingly uncertain. The Dream and Promise Act would provide certainty to undocumented people brought to the U.S. as children whose ability to go to school, get work and even remain in the country has hung in the balance from administration to administration. The bill would also allow those with TPS to apply for citizenship. In total, the Dream and Promise Act would help naturalize nearly 4.5 million people.
