On May 17, 2019 Ms. Roybal-Allard introduced H.R. 2820 also known as “Dream Act of 2019.”
The current version of the Dream Act (H.R. 2820) would grant conditional status to dreamers, who then could apply to become permanent residents and eventually U.S. citizens. To be eligible, an immigrant would have to have been continuously physically present in the U.S. for at least four years before the bill’s enactment, have come to the U.S. before turning 18, and have to meet certain educational or military service requirements. Committing certain crimes would disqualify a potential applicant.
House Judiciary Committee ranking member Doug Collins (R-Ga.) stated “Right now our southern border is in a state of complete and udder disaster. Over the past couple of days, customs and border patrol agents have apprehended an average of 4500 people per day. During the first 7 months of this fiscal year, the number has already surpassed any fiscal year since 2009.”
The Democrats’ plans for mass amnesty would not only fuel the crisis at the border, it fails to close the loopholes in our immigration system. It will not protect this country. It will not end suffering at the border. pic.twitter.com/paVjO7nH09

With Democrats in the majority in the House, this immigration bill is likely to clear the Judiciary Committee and potentially the full House.
