Nancy Pelosi and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus

As Democrats take over the House, immigration is a priority, including finding a pathway to citizenship for DACA recipients known as “dreamers.”

In Pelosi’s letter to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, she outlines the immigration priorities for Democrats.

1- There are approximately 3.2 million Dreamers through the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), a program that was a temporary solution.

2- More than 300,000 individuals have TPS – Temporary Protected Status and they have approximately 275,000 U.S. born children.

3- There are approximately 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States.

Pelosi’s plan to citizenship includes:

  • A pathway to citizenship;
  • U.S. citizenship eligibility for deported veterans;
  • Reunification of separated families;
  • Ending laws that cause separation of families;
  • Ending militarization of the border.

The letter was signed by the following members of Congress: J. Luis Correa, Joaquin Castro, Ruben Gallego, Luis. V. Guitterez, Adriano Espaillat, Juan Vargas, Darren Soto, Lucille Roybal-Allard, Salud Carbajal, Linda Sanche, Raul Ruiz, Raul M. Grijalva, Albio Sires, Norma J. Torres, Tony Cardenas, Pete Aguilar, Jose. E. Serrano; Jimmy Gomez, Nydia M. Velasquez.
