Pelosi, Dems to pass DREAM Act in next congress

The probable incoming speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, said in a statement on Saturday that one of the first orders of business for the new Democratic majority in the House would be to pass a DREAM Act, putting millions of children of illegal aliens on a path to citizenship.

Pelosi was responding to a letter from House Democrats eager to get the DREAMers legalized as soon as possible.


“America draws strength from our long, proud heritage as a nation of immigrants.  In the Majority, Democrats will work to reverse the Republicans’ destructive anti-immigrant agenda,” Pelosi said in a statement Saturday, responding to a letter sent Thursday by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.  “Our House Democratic Majority will once again pass the Dream Act to end the uncertainty and fear inflicted on patriotic young men and women across the country.”

Lawmakers in the Caucus urged Pelosi – who is vying to secure her second spell as speaker of the House during the upcoming congressional session – to schedule votes on legislation to codify protections for recipients of the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and for immigrants with Temporary Protected Status (TPS) within the first 100 days of the 116th Congress.
