NEW YORK – The Dream Act and American Promise Act, extending permanent protection to millions of immigrants whose legal status is threatened, are on their way to the full U.S. House for a vote. 

The bills, passed by the House Judiciary Committee yesterday, would extend permanent protection for young adults known as “Dreamers,” who arrived here as children, and to those who were eligible for Temporary Protected Status or Deferred Enforced Departure as of January 2017. And they would create a path to citizenship for 2.2 million immigrants nationwide, including more than 80,000 in New York. 

[...]

The Trump administration attempted to rescind Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and terminate TPS and DED status for most of the people protected, but those efforts have been blocked by the courts.

After passing background checks and other requirements, the bills would allow both DACA and TPS recipients to apply for green cards and eventually, citizenship. Anu Joshi, senior policy director at the New York Immigration Coalition, points out that many TPS recipients already have lived in the U.S. for decades.

“There’s about 300,000 current TPS recipients, and they have 275,000 U.S.-citizen children,” says Joshi. “So, we’re not just talking about immigrants. We’re talking about U.S.-citizen kids who stand to benefit from this legislation.”

There are more than 30,000 TPS recipients living in New York.

Joshi is confident the bills will pass in the House, but acknowledges it will be more difficult to get them through the Senate. However, she believes there is hope.

“There has been broad, bipartisan support in the past for the Dream Act, and legislation to protect TPS and DED recipients, and we just have to continue applying pressure,” says Joshi.

    BS, we have a legal path to citizenship. Throw the illegals out, specially the ones that Obama snuck into the country by the plane loads.
