Tillis, Lankford, Hatch, Introduce Legislation to Provide Relief to Dreamers
(Washington, D.C.) – Today Senators Tillis, Lankford, and Hatch announced the introduction of legislation to provide relief to Dreamers – people brought to the United States as children through no fault of their own. Under the “Succeed Act,” certain immigrants present in the U.S. since the start of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program would be eligible for conditional permanent resident status. They would be required to obtain a high school diploma, pass a criminal background check, submit biometric identifying data, and pay off any taxes owed. After 10 years, they would be permitted to apply for a green card, during which time they must either earn a college degree, serve in the military, or be consistently employed.
Daniel Garza, President of The LIBRE Initiative, released the following statement:
