WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman TJ Cox (CA-21) joined his colleagues in voting to pass H.R. 6, the American Dream and Promise Act, landmark legislation that provides permanent legal status for our nation’s DREAMers, Temporary Protected Status (TPS), and Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) holders.

“This bill provides a pathway to permanent legal status for our DREAMers, people with Temporary Protected Status, and Deferred Enforced Departure holders, who contribute to and strengthen our country every day. They are just as American as my own children,” said Congressman Cox.

“The American Dream and Promise Act requires applicants to pass extensive background checks and be fully paid up in taxes. These people are our kids and today they are lawyers, doctors, and nurses.
