U.S. House of Representatives Passes Bill to Protect Dreamers, TPS and DED Recipients

The House of Representatives passed the American Dream and Promise Act (H.R. 6) on a bipartisan vote of 237 to 187, the first time the House has passed a bill on protection for Dreamers since 2010.  The bill offers permanent legal status for “Dreamers” and thousands of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) holders.  Some 2 million people would benefit. The Senate must vote on and pass a similar piece of legislation before it can be presented to the President for signature.
