WASHINGTON, D.C. — President Biden is scheduled to meet this afternoon with six Dreamers who are recipients of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.
The following is a statement from Ali Noorani, President and CEO of the National Immigration Forum:
“Today’s meeting shows Dreamers the respect they deserve. Many DACA recipients have been working on the frontlines as America has weathered the pandemic.
“The meeting is also an important step forward in terms of prioritizing immigration. The next immigration meeting in the Oval Office should be with a bipartisan group of senators, to hash out a compromise on immigration reforms.
“In the end, Congress must act to make Dreamers’ contributions permanent and address other overdue changes to our immigration processes.”
