The White House issued a proposed immigration policy on Thursday (25/1).
For 1.8 million young immigrants who enter the US as a child or otherwise known as "Dreamers," will go a long way to acquire citizenship, under various conditions.
For those who are allowed to live under the DACA program, the path to becoming a citizen will take 10 to 12 years and meet the requirements, that is, to have a good job, education and moral character.
Earlier, President Donald Trump told reporters should inform the Dreamers that they need not be troubled.
The Trump Administration unexpectedly released the Immigration and Border Security Reform Framework four days earlier than the planned schedule.
Another element to be observed is the promise of the Trump campaign, $ 25 billion to build a wall along the border with Mexico. But the money could also be used for incoming and outgoing ports, as well as upgrades along the northern border with Canada.
Large family migrations, programs that allow immigrants to sponsor their families, will be eliminated. Only wives and underage children of citizens and green card holders will be allowed. The Trump Administration also called for the cessation of the visa lottery system for certain countries.
The White House hopes the Senate will be able to vote early next month before the Feb. 8 deadline, for congressmen to pass a budget bill allowing the government to continue operating.  Many members of Congress from the Democratic Party, as well as some Republican members opposed the vote on the draft budget law without any agreement on immigration.
If no law was passed on the issue of young immigrants on March 5, officials authorities warned on Thursday that they would be considered illegal immigrants and that when dealing with immigration officials would be immediately processed for deportation. [ps/jm]
