The U.S. Citizenship Act, an immigration reform bill supported by President Joe Biden, was unveiled on Feb. 17 by Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., and Rep. Linda Sanchez, D-Calif.
The bill is a key element of the president's promise to pursue immigration legislation that addresses the status of the undocumented population in the U.S.
Among other things, the bill creates a legalization program for undocumented immigrants, addresses the status of undocumented people who were brought into the country as young children — known as Dreamers — and temporary protected status recipients, reforms the asylum system, and raises the refugee cap.
