house Bill H.R. 6

Should 'Dreamers' & TPS Recipients Have a Path to Permanent Resident Status & Citizenship?

Argument in favor

DREAMers and those who are in the U.S. under Temporary Protected Status (TPS) or Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) rightfully should remain in the U.S. with a path to legal permanent resident status or citizenship.

Yes, protect the dreamers, those on protective status and deferred departure and provide a path to citizenship. A one shot deal to clear the books and do what is right for people held in perpetual limbo. The argument for voting Nay is the height of political BS. If there are juveniles with some form of criminal records that are unjustly excluded either fix the legislation or amend it later. Stopping this legislation cold is not the answer - just look at how long it took our legislators to reach this point. This legislation removes huge stumbling blocks for addressing immigration practices generally and should help lead to a better, fairer and more equitable immigration program for all prospective immigrants on waiting lists from around the world.

A bedtime story. Robert is a Dreamer. He went to school, excelled in all of his classes and graduated valedictorian. He went to the university, medical school, and began his first year residency in an emergency room during a pandemic. His entire family works, pays taxes, and contributes only good to our community. He only knows the USA. The ending of this story (& so many others) is up to you. Chose wisely. BTW, this story is true.

I know a few Dreamers. They came here as very small children. One was literally a infant in arms. They don’t remember anything other than the USA. Don’t choose cruelty.

Argument opposed

This legislation makes those with juvenile offenses ineligible for a path to citizenship, which is unnecessarily punitive and would disproportionately affect minorities. It would be better for Congress to consider other legislation that doesn’t have this discriminatory provision.

Absolutely not. They should have to go through the normal steps and protocols to become a citizen. Dreamers may or may not have been brought here by their parents against their will, but nonetheless they came here illegally. They may not have broken the law but their parents did and they should not get any special treatment because of it. And what makes them “Dreamers” anyway? There are a lot of citizens that have dreams that don’t get realized or come to fruition and I would say that citizens are the real dreamers. We as citizens are just trying to live the American Dream as well. And as such, we should get first crack at that dream.

    Productive people who work, study, pay taxes and have no criminal record should have a pathway to citizenship.

    Yes, we’ve had this discussion before. Why is this so hard to figure out? Children don't make the decision about where to move, when to move! There are many who had no idea they were here illegally! They need to have a path to citizenship and it needs to be affordable. These individuals are already an integral part of our society and can become more so. Please support this action.

    Of course. America has invested in these individuals by educating them, and providing opportunities to them that may not be available in their country of origin. I think all categories of these child immigrants must be given a path to citizenship.

    I absolutely support this legislation. The DREAMERS are here through no fault of their own and most have become good citizens, contributing in many ways to our society.

    We are supposed to be a nation of laws,if we attempted to enter another country illegally we’d be in jail.just because the Democrats want to buy votes from illegals they should honor their oath to office and protect our Constitution,anyone who violates our Constitution should be charged with treason,we allow immigrants as long as they go about it the right way,but what’s happening now is a National Security threat,a health crisis involving COVID and other diseases that are unknown!

    Yes... a path to citizenship is prudent and needed. A clear path forward that is concise and not too complicated and not too easy or too difficult will help. Im part native American... every other part of me and most others is yes, an IMMIGRANT! We, yes, you and I would not be here had the country turned away our ancestors. We would be somewhere else if we existed at all. Have some empathy and compassion dear leaders. You, yes you ... Cruz, Cornyn and Arrington. Our migrant farm workers and families built West Texas. They deserve a fair chance for their accomplishments . We are a melting pot ! Get to work!

    Yes, but there should be requirements attached for their illegal actions. You cannot degrade legal immigration, period! They must demonstrate financial ability and independence from government programs such as welfare. Felons should not get citizenship. Perhaps years of some form of community service as a penalty as well.
