Winning Issue » DREAMERS


DREAM Act is an acronym for the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act. This nickname was given to past legislation that attempted to legalize the status of an estimated 2 million young people living in America who were brought here as children by undocumented immigrant parents, many at a very young age. Most of these children have grown up thinking they were U.S. citizens only to discover their assumptions were in error when they applied for a driver’s license or social security card. These “illegal” Americans, many of whom have graduated from our schools and served in our military, are subject to deportation should they be detained by immigration or law enforcement officials. Most of these young people have never known any home other than America and are not familiar with the country to which they would be deported.

Pending Legislation: Senate version of H.R.6 - American Dream and Promise Act of 2021 (passed House)
Sponsor: Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard (CA)
Status: Senate Committee on the Judiciary
Chair: Sen. Dick Durbin (IL)



Polling Options

  • I oppose reforming current DREAM Act policy and wish to donate resources to the campaign committee of Leader Charles Schumer (NY).
  • I support prohibiting removal proceedings against certain aliens and providing such aliens with a path toward permanent resident status by: 1.) Cancelling removal proceedings against certain aliens who entered the United States as minors and grant such aliens conditional permanent residence status for 10 years. 2.) Establishing streamlined procedures to apply for conditional permanent residence for aliens who received Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status and were not disqualified for renewal. 3.) Removing the conditional permanent resident status granted to such aliens, if the alien applies and meets certain requirements, such as completing certain programs at an educational institution or serving at least two years in the Uniformed Services and being discharged honorably. 3.) Cancelling removal proceedings against certain aliens who qualified for temporary protected status or deferred enforced departure status on certain past dates. For such aliens who apply and pass the required background checks, DHS shall grant permanent residence status. 4.) Establishing a grant program for nonprofit organizations that assist individuals with certain immigration-related issues. And wish to donate resources to the campaign committee of Sen. Dick Durbin (IL) and/or to an advocate group currently working with this issue.
