Permanent DREAM act legislation gaining bipartisan support

Permanent DREAM act legislation gaining bipartisan support

As the March expiration date for DACA recipients grows closer and closer, support for a permanent path to citizenship for DREAMers, which had always been popular among US citizens and lawmakers, has grown dramatically.

Democratic policymakers, within and without the Congress alike, are agressively lobbying for a clean DREAM act, hoping that they can provide DACA recipients with a way to stay in the US without using them as a “bargaining chip” by attaching their fates to otherwise unrelated legislation. Joining them last week are at least 20 Republicans who signed a letter urging Speaker Ryan to address the DREAMers. Additionally, Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) has said he would not support any government spending bills that don’t include solutions for DREAMers; given that indecision over government spending may soon lead to a government shut down, that is a strong show of support.

Many business leaders and organizations, notably the Regional Economic Association Leaders Coalition of California which employ over 3.9 million Californians, have strongly encouraged action, as have faith groups, with over 300 pastors writing President Trump in support of DACA.
