AAU, Associations Support the Dream Act and the American Promise Act

AAU, together with ACE, APLU, and three other higher education associations sent a letter to House Judiciary Chair Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and Ranking Member Doug Collins (R-GA) to request the committee work to pass two bills to protect Dreamers. H.R. 2820, “the Dream Act of 2019,” would create a path to citizenship for talented and productive young people. H.R. 2821, “the American Promise Act of 2019,” would extend previously terminated protections to immigrants with Temporary Protected Status and Deferred Enforced Departure. Of the need to pass legislation to protect Dreamers, the letter says, “it is clear that in Congress, and across the nation, there is widespread and bipartisan support for doing just that.”
