Who’s Standing with Dreamers, TPS and DED in California?

Washington D.C. – With the introduction of H.R. 6, the “Dream and Promise Act of 2019” has come a new hope to address the Trump Administration’s incessant attacks on immigrant communities.

The bill itself represents a new vision for immigrants residing in the United States based on fair and humane policies that value people and their contributions. For those who qualify, this bill offers a path to citizenship which is more inclusive than previous efforts in the past.

The Senate, in turn, has responded by introducing both the DREAM Act and SECURE Act. These pieces of legislation are stand-alone but include a similar vision as the combined H.R. 6 Bill in the House.

One thing is for certain, as the uncertainty of young immigrants, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), Temporary Protective Status (TPS) and Deferred Enforcement Departure (DED) recipients, these bills offer a light at the end of the tunnel.  Below is a list of co-sponsors for each of these three pieces of legislation. The CHIRLA Action Fund will monitor these pieces of legislation as they serve for the foundation for a bold vision for America. We will be tracking the support garnered for these bills and will offer an analysis of what they include as a pro-active solution to section of our immigrant community who continue to be stuck in limbo.
