  • Amnesty For Dreamers ‘Would Incentivize and Reward Illegal Immigration’

    The Trump Administration said Monday it opposes House Resolution 6, the American Dream and Promise Act of 2019, according to an Office of Management and Budget statement. The bill “cancels and prohibits removal proceedings against certain aliens and provides such aliens with a path toward permanent resident status.” Notably, the protections include amnesty for DACA recipients or “Dreamers.” On Monday, the Supreme Court denied the Trump administration’s latest request to end the obama-era program.
