U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar and immigration advocates on Wednesday called for the passage of a measure that would offer legal protections to millions of longtime immigrants who currently lack a pathway to citizenship.

The legislation, called the Dream and Promise Act, would allow immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally as children to apply for permanent legal status, along with immigrants from Central America and the Caribbean who reside here under Temporary Protected Status as well as Liberians in the Deferred Enforced Departure program. House Democrats introduced the bill this month as President Donald Trump’s efforts to end those protections have prompted court challenges.

The article goes on to state the following:

Minnesota’s sizable Liberian population is anxiously awaiting a reprieve after Trump decided last year that those in the deferred departure program had until March 31, 2019, to return to their West African nation, noting that conditions had improved following the civil war. Many have lived and worked in the Twin Cities legally for decades as administrations of both parties extended temporary protections.

Omar accused President Trump in a Twitter post on Thursday of “targeting immigrants and people of color at every turn.”

In another tweet, Omar slammed the president further, writing, “Thousands of Minnesotans currently face deportation because of Trump’s cruel decision to terminate DED status for those who came to the U.S. to seek refuge from Liberia. I’m calling on Trump to restore these protections for our neighbors that we know and love.”

Speaking at a press conference on Thursday, Omar declared that immigrants are “being punished by a cruel ideology of hate coming from this administration.”

“This administration, and Trump himself, has made targeting immigrants a priority,” she claimed, declaring the president has declared open hatred for the immigrants.

Pelosi also held a press conference in support of the measure.
