Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nypost.com: “Biden hosts DACA recipients as he drops Trump health care rule for immigrants”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Amid a growing southern border crisis, President Biden on Friday met privately with six people brought to the US illegally as children and repealed a long-stalled Trump administration policy that would have required immigrants to prove they had health insurance.

The White House said in a statement that Biden “met with six DACA recipients who work in health care, education, and agriculture to discuss their experiences on the frontlines of the pandemic.”

The readout of the meeting said the participants “discussed the continued need for immigration reform and the White House‚Äôs strong support for the Dream and Promise Act and the Farm Workforce Modernization Act.”

The two bills passed the House in March with significant Republican support and would establish a path to citizenship for about half of the estimated 11 million people living in the US without legal permission.

The American Dream and Promise Act passed 228-197 with nine Republicans joining all Democrats voting in favor. The bill would benefit young migrants and refugees with Temporary Protected Status.
