MORE THAN 100 DEMOCRATIC LEGISLATORES SUPPORT THIS BILL

Newsroom/El Comercio de Colorado

Luis Gutiérrez is leading a group of Hispanic democratic congressmen who introduced a bill to protect Dreamers from deportation. This bill is called American Hope Act, and it is the fourth bill presented this year in Washington regarding the Dreamers. If approved, this bill would protect young immigrants who arrived as minors in the United States before December 31st, 2016. “These young immigrants are as American as you and me,” explained Gutiérrez.

The legislator emphasized that this bill is the one with the most support. The Illinois representative assures this proposal has been supported by “more than one hundred congressmen.” The Bridge Act, presented in January 2017 in both chambers, was supported by 25 Representatives and 9 Senators. Meanwhile, the Recognizing America’s Children Act of March 2017 and the Dream Act of Julio 2017 only have the support of 17 lawmakers each.

The benefits

If approved, the American Hope Act would offer protection to a larger group than the Dream Act. It would also grant the Dreamers a path to legal residency, and eventually citizenship, which differs from the Bridge Act, also a bipartisan proposal. Gutiérrez’s bill differs from the other three by not including requisites relating to education, work or military service in order to obtain immigration benefits.

The America Hope Act establishes a path to citizenship for Dreamers. Those who arrived in the U.S. before they were 18 would be able to get the benefit. They can apply for a conditional permanent residence (CPR). Three years later, they can obtain the legal permanent residence (LPR), also known as a green card. These individuals will be eligible for citizenship two years after obtaining a green card.

More pressure

Gutiérrez must obtain the support of Republican congressmen for his bill to be approved. However, democrats are planning in pressuring the Trump administration to guarantee the continuity of the DACA program. This program is currently in limbo and it is under attack by the most conservative sector of the Republican party. Texas and another 9 states threatened with a lawsuit if DACA hasn’t been cancelled before September 5th.
