The U.S. House of Representatives plans to vote this week on a measure that would protect undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children, as well as provide legal status to farm workers
Chattanooga, TN – According to the officials, this move comes as the Biden administration plans on sending FEMA agents to the Southern border to care for massive influxes of unaccompanied migrant children who are being held in detention centers.
According to a law under President Trump known as Title 42, unaccompanied migrant children had to remain outside of the U.S. due to COVID restrictions, and then put through a process before being admitted to the country. But now, that law has been rescinded.
He says that this has led to the influx of migrant children coming across the border, and due to COVID protocols in these detention centers, the process is being delayed.
Both political parties have made attempts at immigration reform over the last several decades, but no legislative efforts have been successfully passed into law.
