FWD.us Statement on House Judiciary Moving the Dream and Promise Act Ahead

WASHINGTON, DC – FWD.us President Todd Schulte issued the following statement today, as the House Judiciary Committee began markup on H.R. 6, the Dream and Promise Act, legislation that would create an earned pathway to citizenship for more than two million immigrants already living and working in the United States, including Dreamers and TPS holders:

“Dreamers and TPS holders have lived in the United States for decades. They are our sisters, brothers, parents, neighbors, and friends. Today, the House Judiciary Committee has the critical opportunity to protect more than 2 million people from these communities. People who have been living under the threat of deportation, and at risk of being ripped out of the workforce for most of the last two years. This is an important moment for this Congress and for our country. We urge House Judiciary members to move this critical legislation out of committee, and for leadership to bring this legislation swiftly to a vote. Every Member of Congress should vote to provide these vital communities with the stability and peace of mind they desperately need. There is absolutely no reason to delay.”
