Immigration legislation that President-elect Joe BidenJoe BidenWoman accused of trying to sell Pelosi laptop to Russians arrested Trump gets lowest job approval rating in final days as president Trump moves to lift coronavirus travel restrictions on Europe, Brazil MORE is expected to propose on his first day in office will reportedly include an eight-year path to citizenship for approximately 11 million people.
An unidentified source told The Associated Press that the bill Biden plans to introduce after he takes the oath of office Wednesday will be hundreds of pages in length.
The AP reported that under the legislation, those living in the U.S. without legal status as of Jan. 1, 2021, will have a five-year path to temporary legal status or a green card if they pass background checks, pay taxes and fulfill other requirements. After this, individuals would then have a three-year process to naturalization.
So-called "Dreamers," the young undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children, as well as agricultural workers and people under temporary protective status, would qualify more immediately for green cards under certain conditions, including if they are working or in school.
