BAJI: The Dream and Promise Act is anti-Black

Last month, the Democratic-led House of Representatives passed the Dream and Promise Act. The Dream and Promise Act provides permanent protections to certain immigrant youth and young adults (commonly known as ‘Dreamers’) and the 400,000 adults here with Temporary Protected Status (TPS).

The criminal bars in the Dream and Promise Act reinforce the racist US carceral system. Black people with one felony, three misdemeanors, or who have been accused of gang involvement will be rejected from the Dream and Promise Act outright. The current surge of immigration bills being introduced, supported, and glorified prioritize the policing and criminalization of Black people as the primary trade-off for the path to citizenship. In short, these bills are anti-Black. We denounce these immigration bills because we seek justice for Black people.
