FWD.us Statement on Introduction of the Solution for Undocumented Children through Careers, Employment, Education, and Defending our Nation (SUCCEED) Act

WASHINGTON, DC – FWD.us President Todd Schulte released the following statement today after Republican Senator Thom Tillis introduced the SUCCEED Act in the Senate, which allows hardworking young people who arrived in the U.S. as minors to adjust their status if they can meet certain employment, educational, or military requirements, and pass a background check:

“We’re encouraged to see Senator Tillis, Senator Lankford, and Senator Hatch join President Trump and the 75% of Republicans who want Congress to pass legislation to allow Dreamers to stay permanently in the only country they know as home. No legislation is perfect, but it is critical that any bill that makes its way to the President’s desk ensures due process protections for these hardworking young people, and includes a reasonable pathway to citizenship. We need to be clear that talk and assurances mean nothing without a law signed into place, and we urge every single member of Congress to cosponsor bipartisan legislation to protect Dreamers without delay.”
