Harris’s proposal aims to eliminate current barriers that Dreamers face when it comes to applying for green cards. Under the Immigration and Nationality Act, only immigrants who are “admitted or paroled’ into the United States are eligible for legal status. One of the executive actions she would take is to establish a “parole in place” program. Her action would make it so Dreamers are considered “paroled” and therefore in the United States legally. This would allow Dreamers to apply for a green card if they had a spouse who is a U.S. Citizen.
