Democrats push for DACA amnesty plan before Republicans take power in House

Democrats are looking to approve amnesty legislation for millions of illegal immigrants ahead of Republicans taking back power in the House in January.

The focus is on an updated version of the DREAM Act that would create a pathway for citizenship for DACA recipients (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) that could include up to two million people.

"That program, established by President Barack Obama in 2012, granted protection from deportation for millions of illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children," Fox News reported.

"The program was recently dealt a blow when an appeals court upheld a 2021 ruling that prevented further enrollments, which was found to be illegal," it added.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer advocated for 11 million illegal immigrants to have a pathway to citizenship in a recent video.

"We have a population that is not reproducing on its own with the same level that it used to," Schumer said.

"The only way we're going to have a great future in America is if we welcome and embrace immigrants, the dreamers and all of them, because our ultimate goal is to help the dreamers, but get a path to citizenship for all 11 million or however many undocumented there are here. And we will be pursuing that in the next Senate," he added.

The fight for immigration legislation will be intense in the closing weeks of the year as the left makes a final push to increase amnesty ahead of losing its legislative power.

The moves also reveal the importance of conservative leadership in the House and Senate, as the decisions could impact the legal status of millions of current illegal immigrants.
