We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to help our families, communities, and economy, by allowing millions of people who have lived in our communities for decades, and who are vital to our country, the ability to earn citizenship. The House of Representatives must pass the Dream and Promise Act now.
People across America have seen first-hand the vital role of immigrants — specifically undocumented immigrants — in helping our communities survive the pandemic. Nearly one million Dreamers are essential frontline workers. Their contributions are vital to our nation’s continued public health and economic recovery from COVID-19. Without a pathway to citizenship, they remain at risk of being ripped out of their jobs and separated from their families.
The Dream and Promise Act would provide a permanent pathway to citizenship to over three million Dreamers, Temporary Protected Status (TPS) holders, and Deferred Enforced Departure recipients.
The American people are more than ready for the House of Representatives to put undocumented immigrants on a pathway to citizenship.The House must pass this crucial bill For Our Families.
