Vice President Harris is scheduled to meet with Dreamers today on the ninth anniversary of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
DACA shields hundreds of thousands of immigrants, known as Dreamers, from deportation. These are people who were brought to the U.S. illegally when they were children. Harris will host a roundtable with female Dreamers at the White House.
Also today, the Senate Judiciary Committee is holding a hearing on a bill that would provide permanent legal status for an estimated eleven-million illegal immigrants.
