For anyone interested in how the US Immigration system actually works, here are a couple of links. The green card is a must.

Almost all Dreamers do not have a close family member who is a U.S. citizen or who has permanent legal status, making it almost impossible to obtain a green card.

“A lot of people have this misunderstanding that Dreamers were given citizenship or they’re shirking their responsibilities by not becoming citizens,” Keller said. “They can’t do it. You have to follow the existing law.”

In some rare cases, an American spouse can sponsor a Dreamer’s application for a green card, but the applicant would still have to leave the U.S. for a period of time.

There are a number of bills circulating in Congress on this topic. In July of 2017, a group of bi-partisan group legislators introduced the Dream Act of 2017. That bill would provide a pathway for Dreamers to become U.S. citizens, as well as take away the threat of deportation.

What happened to this bipartisan bill that would go a long way to solving the problem?
