Conservatives fight against allowing citizenship for dreamers

If you're brought to a new country as a child, you have no choice in the matter. Your parents or guardians are the ones making decisions that change your life.

Most people in the United States understand that some people are here illegally as a result of those types of actions. While deportation is an option, that's detrimental to the family and harmful for the individual who may have no recollection of living in another country.

This is an ongoing debate in the United States, and a report about an interview with a representative from Raleigh shows one thing people against creating a pathway to citizenship have a problem with. According to the article, the Republican stated that he wouldn't want to vote for an immigration bill that allowed citizenship for people brought to America illegally as children. Instead, he would be okay with finding a way for these individuals to stay, but not as citizens.

In his mind, it's important to have a penalty for coming to the country illegally, even if it wasn't the child's choice. Presently, Congress has six months to create a solution for people in this position before the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is rescinded. Nearby in North Carolina, that could affect over 27,000 people. In Georgia, it will affect many people as well.

Conservatives have now suggested a way for DACA recipients to stay in the country with work permits, but this would still not allow for citizenship. It's important to stay up-to-date with these changes if you're looking to gain citizenship. If a law is passed, your attorney can help you understand how it will affect you.
