The proposal will create a pathway to citizenship most undocumented immigrants

On a chilly wet morning two yrs ago, a few federal brokers barged into the house Omar Bautista was sharing with his wife and two youngsters. It was the beginning of a 10-month ordeal. 

Bautista, who lives in Burlington, was taken to the Alamance County Jail for a few days then transferred to an immigration detention center in Ga, the place he languished for 10 months not knowing if he would be separated from his two young children – a 7-calendar year-old daughter and an 8-month-old son. It was just a calendar year into Trump’s presidency and his tougher immigration policies ended up starting to choose hold.  

But after 4 a long time of living in uncertainty and fear, Bautista and thousands and thousands of other undocumented immigrants now have causes to hope for a far better foreseeable future. A new Biden administration options to suggest laws that will make it possible for recipients of Deferred Motion for Childhood Arrivals or “DREAMers” like Bautista to immediately apply for everlasting lawful residency and build a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants residing in the U.S.
