MPI Estimates of Potential Beneficiaries under the 2017 DREAM Act and the Recognizing America’s Children Act

MPI Estimates of Potential Beneficiaries under the 2017 DREAM Act and the Recognizing America’s Children Act

The Migration Policy Institute (MPI) is providing estimates of the unauthorized populations that could potentially gain legal status under the DREAM Act of 2017 introduced in the Senate and the Recognizing America’s Children Act (RAC Act) offered in the House, using an innovative methodology that permits the assignment of legal status in U.S. Census Bureau data. These estimates are discussed in detail in a fact sheet, Protecting the DREAM: The Potential Impact of Different Legislative Scenarios for Unauthorized Youth, that was revised and updated in October 2017.
