Houses passes bill to protect 'Dreamers', but faces long odds in Republican-led Senate

E-mail Print PDF
Dreamers bill passed in HouseThe House on Tuesday passed the American Dream and Promise Act, which would provide a path to citizenship for more than 2.5 million undocumented immigrants who face deportation under Trump administration policies.

Chants of "USA. USA. USA" echoed through the House chamber upon passage of the bill. The measure passed 237-187 largely along party lines in the Democratic-controlled House, but the measure is not expected to go anywhere in a Senate where Republicans hold the majority.

Republicans have made clear they will only support such expansive protections for those known as "Dreamers," undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children, if billions of dollars in border security and other changes to the nation's immigration system are also part of the legislation.
