Description

Passage of the bill that would provide legal residency status for certain undocumented immigrants who entered the United States as children or from nations with Temporary Protected Status designation and would prohibit the Homeland Security and Justice Departments from initiating or continuing the removal of such individuals. Title I of the bill would require DHS and DOJ to grant applications for ten-year conditional permanent residency status to undocumented immigrants who entered the U.S. at age 18 or younger prior to Jan. 1, 2021, have lived continuously in the U.S. since that time, and have earned or are enrolled in a program to earn a technical, high school, or postsecondary degree. It would disqualify certain individuals from receiving such a status based on factors including criminal record, gang participation, or other threats to public safety. It would require DHS to grant permanent resident status to conditional residents if they maintain eligibility for conditional residency and meet certain qualifications related to postsecondary education, military service, or employment. It would also require DHS to establish a streamlined residency application process for individuals enrolled in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. Title II of the bill would require DHS and DOJ to grant applications for permanent residency status to foreign nationals from countries designated for Temporary Protected Status as of Jan. 1, 2017, or Deferred Enforced Departure as of Jan. 20, 2021, who have lived continuously in the U.S. for at least three years and are not ineligible for admission under current immigration law. Among other provisions, the bill would prohibit DHS from removing individuals who appear eligible for residency status under the bill's provisions before providing them an opportunity to apply for residency; provide for judicial and administrative review for individuals whose residency status is denied or revoked; require DHS to establish a grant program for nonprofit organizations to assist eligible individuals in the application process; and repeal an existing law prohibiting states from from granting eligibility for certain higher education benefits to individuals not lawfully present in the U.S. based on their state residency.
