House Democrats Introduce ‘Dreams and Promise Act’ Bill for Undocumented Immigrants

House Democrats are working to open up a pathway to citizenship for more than a million undocumented immigrants in the US.

They introduced a new bill called the ‘Dream and Promise Act.’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi unveiled it during a news conference on Tuesday.

The measure would give illegal immigrants who came to the US as children, also known as ‘dreamers’, residency for 10 years.

It would also give immigrants with temporary protected status the opportunity to gain lawful permanent resident status.

The bill will likely face an uphill battle in Congress.

President Trump and Republican leaders in the Senate have been critical of similar programs in the past.
