CURRENT BUDGET BILL BEING WRITTEN BY CONGRESS DEMOCRATS SHOULD TACKLE IMMIGRATION SAYS PRESIDENT BIDEN
He further stated that Dreamers’ pathway to citizenship may be included in the bill. Dreamers are children who are brought to the United States and are protected under DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) from deportation and are granted access to work authorization, driver’s licenses and, sometimes, help with financial aid. DACA does not create a pathway to citizenships as many believe.
The budget bill is expected to contain legislation on climate, social spending and tax credits. Immigration reform inclusion is still unclear. In an evenly divided Senate the bill may be threatened. In the event of a tie vote, Vice President Harris would cast the tiebreaking vote.
