AMNESTY ALERT: Dream Act ‘On Hold’ After Amnesty Activists Demand Criminals Get Path to Citizenship

The DREAM Act has reportedly temporarily stalled in the House because amnesty activists are insisting that Democrats grant a pathway to citizenship to illegal immigrants who have committed crimes.
According to a Thursday evening Politico report, the pro-amnesty legislation that House leaders have prioritized as one of the most important of this Congress is now reportedly “on hold, with Democrats scrambling to draft language that can secure enough votes in committee and on the floor” without exposing moderate Democrats to some uncomfortable votes before their 2020 reelection races.
The bill, authored by Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-CA), would give so-called Dreamers who have not committed a felony or three misdemeanors a pathway to citizenship (“conditional permanent resident status”).
Some moderate House Democrats, according to the report, “worry the language in the bill is too broad and want to consider changes so that committing only certain misdemeanors would allow people to remain on the path to citizenship.”
