Biden acknowledges 11th DACA anniversary amidst immigration and border disputes.

President Biden Pledges to Fight for “Pathway to Citizenship” for Dreamers

In a powerful statement commemorating the eleventh anniversary of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, President Joe Biden reaffirmed his commitment to providing a “pathway to citizenship” for Dreamers. These are individuals who entered the country illegally as children but have since contributed to American society.

Biden highlighted the positive impact of the DACA program, which has provided education and labor protections to over 800,000 Dreamers. He emphasized that Dreamers are an integral part of American society, serving as doctors, teachers, and small business owners. He acknowledged their contributions to the economy and their heroic efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The president acknowledged the bipartisan support for the Dream Act, originally introduced by former Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL). He emphasized that this legislation has garnered widespread support from lawmakers, business leaders, educational institutions, and the majority of the American public.

While President Biden and Vice President Harris are committed to fighting for legislation to protect Dreamers and provide them with a path to citizenship, he emphasized that only Congress has the power to ensure permanent stability for these young individuals and their families. He urged Congress to take action and protect the Dreamers.

The president’s stance on immigration will undoubtedly be a central topic of debate in the upcoming 2024 presidential campaign. Republicans have criticized the Biden administration for what they perceive as weakened border protections and are currently preparing for an impeachment vote against Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas.
