Clarke (NY-09) announced the introduction of H.R. 6, the Dream and Promise Act.  Speaker Pelosi has the power to assign the bill numbers H.R. 1 through H.R. 10 for this Congress, and the Dream and Promise Act’s designation as H.R. 6 underscores its status as a priority of the House Majority.  The bill is the 116th Congress’s version of the Dream Act, a bill which has been introduced since 2001 to allow the U.S.-raised immigrant youth known as “Dreamers” to earn lawful permanent residence and American citizenship.  However, H.R. 6 includes protections and a path to citizenship not just for Dreamers, but also for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) beneficiaries.  Speaker Pelosi and the bill’s three co-authors, Congresswomen Roybal-Allard, Velázquez, and Clarke, announced H.R. 6 today at a press event with House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (MD-05), Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren (CA-19), Congressman Mark Takano (CA-41), fellow House Democrats, and Dreamer and TPS individuals covered by the legislation.  204 House Members have signed on to H.R. 6. ... read more »
