WASHINGTON, D.C. - The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) recognizes the important work done by Senators Thom Tillis (R-NC), James Lankford (R-OK), and Orrin Hatch (R-UT) with the introduction of the SUCCEED Act which offers urgently needed protection for young undocumented immigrants known as Dreamers. The sponsors of the bill recognize that Dreamers deserve a permanent solution that ultimately gives them the opportunity to become full members of American society.
AILA is deeply concerned however by several of the bill's provisions that quite simply are unworkable and would need to be fixed before AILA could support the final bill. We hope that the Senators will correct the flaws in their bill and continue their efforts to ensure passage of a bill protecting Dreamers. With such overwhelming support among Americans for Dreamers, AILA urges Congress to move forward swiftly by bringing for a vote the bipartisan Dream Act, which represents our best chance to unite Republicans and Democrats.
These are the most problematic provisions in the SUCCEED Act, including extraneous provisions that will harm businesses and families:
