Floor Schedule and Procedures
Under a Rule (1 bill):
H.R. 6 – American Dream and Promise Act (Rep. Roybal-Allard – Judiciary)
This bill offers a pathway to citizenship for several groups of immigrants who have lived in the country for decades – those with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), Temporary Protected Status (TPS), and Deferred Enforced Departure (DED). Dreamers who are eligible for protection under the bill on average arrived in the United States at the age of 8 and have grown up and built their lives knowing the United States as their home. Immigrations eligible for TPS or DED – programs protecting individuals in the United States whose countries of origin are experiencing ongoing armed conflict, natural disasters, or other extraordinary conditions – have, on average, lived in the United States since 1997. Up to 2.5 million immigrants across the country could be eligible for protection under the Dream and Promise Act.
