Last week, Senator Kay Hutchinson (R-TX) and Jon Kyl (R-AZ) put forward the ACHIEVE Act, which would offer legal status for certain eligible undocumented youth. This proposal is similar to the bill that Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) worked on last summer as an alternative to the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act which has been championed for over a decade by Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL). Most notable, the new proposal differs from the DREAM Act in that it would not provide a pathway to citizenship for eligible undocumented individuals. Learn more.
