UNITED STATES

Several bills have been introduced Congress that would protect undocumented youth, known as “dreamers,” from deportation, replacing the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. On Sept. 5, the Trump administration announced that it would phase out DACA by March 5, 2018, giving Congress six months to come up with a legislative solution.

BAL has prepared a chart of current legislative bills to protect undocumented childhood arrivals and a comparison of each bill’s provisions on eligibility, relief offered and basis for rescission. Read the comparison here.
