Mar 18, 2021 Issues: Immigration

WASHINGTON – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (RI-01) issued the following statement today:

“Dreamers are American in every sense of the word. The only thing they lack is a piece of paper. The American Dream and Promise Act ensures they will not be deported from the only country they’ve ever known. It offers them a path to citizenship. I was proud to vote for this bill.”

“President Biden inherited a broken immigration system from his predecessor. The Senate should pass the American Dream and Promise Act immediately so we can begin the difficult work of building an immigration system that works.”
