The Vice-President-elect of the United States, Kamala Harris, has stated she would present a bill on citizenship for 11 million immigrants to Congress.
The former Attorney General of California disclosed this via Twitter on Tuesday.
Harris also stated that she and President-elect Joe Biden would start from the first day in office to put COVID-19 under control and save Americans’ lives.
“We’ll take action to protect Dreamers and send a bill to Congress with a roadmap to citizenship for 11M undocumented people. And we’ll rejoin the Paris Agreement. This is just the beginning,” she tweeted.
The Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act, is a proposal that will grant temporary conditional residency, with the right to work, to immigrants who entered America as minors.
They would be entitled to get permanent residency, having satisfied additional further qualifications.
The Trump administration planned to scrap off the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, DACA, program that was created under the former PONTUS, Barack Obama.
DACA is a program aimed at giving temporary, renewable protection to young people referred to as Dreamers.
