Senate Floor: Passing the American Dream and Promise Act and the Farm Workforce Modernization Act
On March 3rd 2021 the American Dream and Promise Act (H.R. 6) as well as the Farm Workforce Modernization Act (H.R. 1603) were introduced into the House of Representatives and passed 228 to 197 and 247 to 174, respectively. Now that the House of Representatives has passed these bills they move on to the Senate Floor to be voted on.
The American Dream and Promise Act would create a pathway to citizenship and, in most cases, cancel removal proceedings for Dreamers, people with Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and people with Deferred Enforced Departure (DED). The bill would allow individuals who’ve lived most of their lives in the U.S. the ability to stay in their home country by further contributing to their community and nation.
Similarly, the Farm Workforce Modernization Act would provide a pathway to legal status to U.S. agricultural workers and their families. The passage of this bill would reinforce U.S. agriculture and preserve rural farming which all are fundamental components of maintaining a strong economy.
