Dreamers bill approval supported by Hispanic residents

Hispanic residents in Door and Kewaunee Counties are excited over the U.S. House of Representatives' approval of a bill setting a citizenship path for Dreamers. Those include the young children of illegal immigrants, those born after their parents arrived, and people who entered the country for humanitarian reasons. That bill was approved Thursday 228-197.  Imelda Delchambre, with the Hispanic Resource Center of Door and Kewaunee Counties, calls it a hopeful sign that one chamber of Congress is helping the bill move ahead.



 





The bill faces a tough battle for approval in the U.S. Senate.  It would need 10 Republican senators to join Democrats in approving the bill and sending it on to President Biden's desk.
