- Polling Issues

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)
