Senate Bill: U.S. Citizenship Act

2/18/21 AILA Doc. No. 21021833. Congress

On 2/18/21, Senator Menendez (D-NJ) shared text of the U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021 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.” The bill is expected to be introduced in the Senate on 2/22/21. An identical bill was introduced in the House by Representative Sánchez (D-CA).

This bill embodies the legislative proposals that President Biden announced on day one of his new administration. At this time, AILA has not yet taken a position on the bill, but will be carefully reviewing the legislative proposal to determine whether to endorse the legislation.
