AILA Doc. No. 17072035 | Dated March 19, 2021
Now the Senate must act and bring these bills up for a vote. AILA urges swift passage of both bills.
Following the Trump administration's rescission of DACA and the termination of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for many designated countries, there has been increasing pressure from both Democrats and Republicans to pass a permanent legislation to protect Dreamers and TPS recipients. Americans have long shown overwhelming support for protecting Dreamers - polls have shown that 86 percent of Americans want Dreamers to be able to stay in the country. TPS recipients are integral members of our economy - without them, industries such as construction, restaurants and other food services, and landscaping would experience disruptions that would have serious ripple effects on the economies of several states.
Dreamers and TPS recipients make America a better and stronger nation, and it's time for Congress to pass bipartisan legislation to protect them from deportation and secure them a future as Americans.
AILA supports several bills in the 117th Congress that would provide permanent legal status and a path to citizenship for all unauthorized immigrants including Dreamers and recipients of TPS and DED.
For more information on past legislative efforts to protect Dreamers, check out our AILA Policy Brief: How Dreamer Protection Bills Measure Up.
