ACLU Urges Action Following Reintroduction of the American Dream and Promise Act

June 15, 2023 10:30 am

WASHINGTON — Members of Congress from both parties reintroduced the American Dream and Promise Act today. Naureen Shah, senior legislative counsel with the American Civil Liberties Union, had the following reaction:

“With immigrant communities under attack in the courts and state legislatures, the reintroduction of the American Dream and Promise Act on a bipartisan basis is a powerful repudiation of anti-immigrant fearmongering.

“The American Dream and Promise Act fulfills the promise of a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers and TPS holders. But there are still too many people who live in the shadows, without legal protections in a country many have called home for years or decades. We must keep fighting for a pathway to citizenship for all undocumented members of our communities.”
