A majority of Utahns believe legal immigration should be easier (Utah Policy) and that Dreamers should be given a legal pathway to stay in the United States (Tribune-Hinckley). Both parties in Congress have worked toward providing permanent protections for immigrant youth for two decades.
Now they the chance to pass meaningful policy, the Dream and Promise Act, to create a path to permanent legal protection for immigrants who have lived (and worked) in America for decades, including immigrant youth under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (Dreamers) and people with Temporary Protected Status (TPS) or Deferred Enforced Departure (DED).
The House is likely to vote on the Dream and Promise Act THIS WEEK!
