MPI Estimates of Potential Beneficiaries under the DREAM Act of 2021

The Migration Policy Institute (MPI) is providing estimates of the unauthorized populations that could potentially gain legal status under the DREAM Act of 2021 introduced in the Senate in February 2021 by Sens. Richard Durbin (D-IL) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), using an innovative MPI methodology that permits the assignment of legal status in U.S. Census Bureau data. For more on other unauthorized immigrant populations that are the subject of legalization discussions, see Back on the Table: U.S. Legalization and the Unauthorized Immigrant Groups that Could Factor in the Debate.
