Fifth version of DREAM Act introduced to Congress

Posted on December 9th, 2010 No Comments

The fifth version of the DREAM Act has been introduced to Congress and significant compromises have been made.

The new bills were added to the Act in order to address concerns that were made by Republicans and Democrats that are still on the fence about the issue. For example, the eligibility requirements are now stricter and include bars to those who have committed a misdemeanor and have not shown good moral character since their entry into the U.S. The new bill also requires that a person wait 10 years to receive a “conditional non-immigrant” status and receive a greencard.

On the House side, the bill was almost up for vote on Friday. The current plan is for the House to vote this Friday on a bill that has not been introduced, but that will be similar to changes that were made for the Senate version. Many are hoping that it will win in the House creating momentum for it to pass in the Senate as well.

If you or a loved one has been trying to receive a green card, you need experienced representation on your side. Contact the green card lawyers of Austin by calling 512-323-2333 today.
