The Dream Act

the dream actThe Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act, known as the DREAM Act, is a legislative proposal to grant temporary conditional residency, with the right to work, to qualifying immigrants who entered the U.S. as minors—and, if they later satisfy further qualifications, they would attain permanent residency.

In 2001, Senators Dick Durbin (D-Illinois) and Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) first introduced the bill in the Senate as S. 1291, but it did not pass. The proposal has since been reintroduced many times, but has not been approved by majorities in both houses of Congress.

On March 18, 2021, the Dream and Promise Act of 2021 (H.R. 6) was approved by the House of Representatives.

What is the DREAM Act?

The Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act is a piece of proposed legislation that was introduced to the United States Senate, and the House of Representatives. Senator Durbin the bill’s co-author says, the Act is “a narrowly tailored, bipartisan measure which would permit undocumented students to become permanent residents if they came here as children, are long-term U.S. residents, have good moral character, and attend college or enlist in the military for at least two years.”

On March 3, 2021, the American Dream and Promise Act of 2021 (H.R. 6) was introduced in the House of Representatives. The bill offers a pathway to citizenship not only to the undocumented, but also to thousands of children of parents who came to the U.S. with certain types of temporary working visas, many of whom “aged-out” before they could get green cards.
