Last night, the Dream & Promise Act and the Farm Workforce Modernization Act were reintroduced to Congress. These bills would put millions on a pathway to citizenship and are an important step in the overall goal of obtaining status for the 11 million undocumented workers who have made the United States their home.
Many advocates and immigrants celebrated these landmark bills and expressed their understanding of the fight head. Here are some of our favorite reactions:
THRILLED to see the reintroduction of the Dream and Promise Act. Even more thrilled at the prospects of passing it along with the Farm Workforce Modernization Act out of the house this month!!! We can do this!!!! #WeAreHome

Congress can build a pathway to citizenship for immigrants working in the frontlines of #COVID19 recovery—including DACA recipients, TPS holders, and farmworkers.

Meet Viktor, a #DACA recipient and essential worker in the frontline against #COVID19 who would benefit from legislation that creates a pathway towards citizenship.
