On 2/18/21, Representative Sánchez (D-CA) introduced the U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021 in the House “to provide an earned path to citizenship, to address the root causes of migration and responsibly manage the southern border, and to reform the immigrant visa system, and for other purposes.” An identical bill is expected to be introduced in the Senate by Senator Menendez (D-NJ) on 2/22/21.
