Tomorrow, May 22, the House Judiciary Committee will begin markup on the Dream and Promise Act, H.R. 6. Markup involves the committee considering and adopting or rejecting amendments and reporting the legislation to the House floor for a vote. The House floor vote will likely occur in the next few weeks. This is a key time for this legislation and we encourage campuses and students to voice support for an expedient House floor vote after the bill is marked up out of committee.

Accordingly, in this update, we share information regarding the latest developments on the Dream and Promise Act, H.R. 6, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), and Dreamers generally. Below see updates, links to resources, and details on actions to consider during this period of time.

Thank you for your continued support.
