15 minutes. More than 3 million migrants would immediately obtain the green card or a green card, which allows legal residence in the United States (USA), if the Citizenship Law promoted by the president, Joe Biden, is successful in Congress. These people, for the most part, came to the country as children.
The Migration Policy Institute (MPI) estimates that almost 3.3 million people would benefit from this reform. Among them, more than 1.3 million dreamers or dreamers, as those who arrived with their undocumented parents and have lived practically their entire lives in the US are known.
Another 1.1 million correspond to workers in the primary sector. To these would be added 342,000 more if spouses and minor children are taken into account.
What’s more, the study figures at 279,000 potential beneficiaries within the Temporary Protected Status (TPS), which is granted to certain groups.
The migrant law, which is still pending, is being promoted by several Democrats at the request of Biden. The regulation outlines a plan so that the 11 million undocumented people living in the US can have nationality within 8 years.
Biden has set himself the goal of solving the situation of this group, who lives under the perpetual shadow of expulsion.
The current president has already warned that he would try to reverse the immigration policy of his predecessor, Donald Trump. This has resulted in a battery of decrees that have contemplated various measures. For example, stopping the financing of the wall on the border with Mexico or allowing entry to those who were deported while their asylum applications were being resolved.

UN says 41 Europe-bound migrants have drown in Mediterranean
CAIRO (AP) — At least 41 people drowned over the weekend when their boat capsized in the Central Mediterranean, the U.N. said on Wednesday, the latest shipwreck involving migrants fleeing conflict-stricken Libya and seeking better life in Europe.
The U.N. migration and refugee agencies said in a joint statement that the dead were among at least 120 migrants on a dinghy that left Libya on Feb. 18. The shipwreck took place two days later, it said.
A commercial vessel rescued the survivors and took them to the Sicilian port town of Porto Empedocle in Italy, they added.
Only one body was recovered, and the missing included three children and four women, one of whom left behind a newborn baby currently in Lampedusa, it said.
The shipwreck was the latest along the Central Mediterranean migration route, where about 160 Europe-bound migrants have died since the beginning of 2021, the U.N. agencies said.
In the years since the 2011 uprising that ousted and killed longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi, war-torn Libya has emerged as the dominant transit point for migrants fleeing war and poverty in Africa and the Middle East.
Smugglers often pack desperate families into ill-equipped rubber boats that stall and founder along the perilous Central Mediterranean route.
Over the last several years, hundreds of thousands of migrants have reached Italy either on their own or after being rescued at sea.
