The President of the United States, Joe Biden, has promised to introduce the Citizenship Act, an extremely ‘ambitious’ immigration reform that would provide a path to citizenship to millions of undocumented people and these are the possible requirements.

Although few details of the new law pushed by President Biden have been released, some of the main requirements for the more than 11 million immigrants who could receive citizenship have already been revealed.

Arrival in the United States

One of the main requirements to be eligible is to have arrived or be living in the country before January 1, 2021, so any immigrant who arrived afterwards will not qualify for citizenship through the Biden reform.

Background checks

Another important point to access the process in the new Citizenship Law is to approve a review of “criminal background checks and national security”, according to the Dallas news. The same that could be done by federal agencies in the United States to determine if the immigrant applying for residency or citizenship is eligible.

Paying taxes

According to The Associated Press, another requirement would be the payment of taxes. The reform that has been called “the most progressive bill in history”, would contemplate that applicants comply with their obligations with the Treasury, something that can also be seen within the requirements to obtain a aid check by coronavirus.

Faster process for citizenship

Under the proposal, those who lived in the United States until January 1, 2021 without legal status would have a five-year path to temporary legal status, or a Green Card.

From that point, they have a three-year path to naturalize, if they decide to do so, and they meet some requirements to receive citizenship with the new reform, notes The Associated Press.

The so-called “dreamers”, which are young people who came to the United States during childhood, and who belong to the DACA program, as well as agricultural workers and people under Temporary Protected Status, may qualify for a permanent residence card , also known as a Green Card, if they are working, studying or meet other requirements.

With this immigration reform, Biden dispels any belief that his policies would be similar to those of former President Barack Obama, who promised a comprehensive bill in his first year but waited five years while racking up more than two million deportations.

‘Arduous’ task to pass immigration reform

The ‘titanic’ task of passing a reform with the conditions proposed by Biden will run into a series of obstacles in a 50-50 split Senate.

To move forward, legislation must have 60 votes in favor to prevent filibustering – a tactic to obstruct the passage of a law.

This means that 10 Republicans should join with all the Democrats in enacting an extremely complicated immigration reform.

Many are ‘excited’ about the new reform

Encouraged by a new Democratic government and control of the two legislative chambers, immigrant rights advocates prepare for new political battles.

Same in which they will try to give impetus to the proposal of President Joe Biden, which could pave the way for the naturalization of 11 million people, says The Associated Press.

National organizations such as United We Dream and the United Farm Workers Foundation launched a million-dollar campaign on Monday through the hashtag #WeAreHome (WeAreHome) that has already started posting ads on Facebook and other social networks in order to pressure legislators to support the measure.
