Some Democrats Advocating Legal Status, But Not Citizenship

Some Congressional Democrats are considering a compromise on immigration reform that would put undocumented immigrants on a path to legalization but not, citizenship, according to the Rio Grande Guardian.
Under the plan, undocumented immigrants would become legal residents of the United States. They would be able to work legally and travel as they wish. But they could not apply for citizenship. They would have to go through the standard process to apply for citizenship.
La Unión del Pueblo Entero, a group working to empower tens of thousands of undocumented immigrants, held a news conference on immigration reform on Monday. Group members are participating in a 40-day fast in support of a pathway to citizenship and against further militarization of the U.S.-Mexico border region.
