House of Representatives pass H.R.6 - American Dream and Promise Act of 2019

On June 4th, 2019 the American Dream and Promise Act, which would provide protection from deportation and a path to citizenship to over 2 million Dreamers and TPS and DED recipients, passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 237 to 187.

The American Dream and Promise Act, which would provide protection from deportation and a path to citizenship to over 2 million Dreamers and TPS and DED recipients, passed the House. AILA's Associate Director of Government Relations Kate Voigt discusses the significance of this landmark bill.

The bill would grant permanent residency with a path to citizenship to more than 2 million immigrants across three categories: It would permanently protect from deportation Dreamers – immigrants who came to the country illegally as children – as well as certain recipients of the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) programs. TPS and DED are programs that grant work permits and protect from deportation citizens of certain countries that have undergone natural or man-made disasters. For more coverage, click here.
