The long and thorny process to legalize at least 11 million people in the United States, began today to open a path of hope, with a petition for reform of immigration law presented by Democrats to Congress.
Democrat Bob Menendez, presented the reform request to Congress, and said that it is the beginning to restore and humanize the migration system and values of the nation, as well as maintaining family unification.
With the presentation of the request for reforms, Joe Biden, president of the nation, began the fulfillment of one of his electoral campaign promises, but nevertheless, the process to approve the reform needs, at least, of 10 Republican wing votes.
It should be noted that the dreamers (young people who migrated with their parents as children), and people covered by temporary status programs such as TPS, farm workers, people abused at work and victims of abuse at home and in authority, could achieve temporary residency for three years, to later seek citizenship, according to the reform proposal document presented.
