Joe Baca wants to put an amnesty for assimilated smuggled children called the PROUD Act.
America is the land of opportunity; we are blessed to live in a nation where people of diverse backgrounds can come together as one. This is why I continue to work to provide all our children with an equal opportunity at success. My legislation, The People Resolved to Obtain an Understanding of Democracy (PROUD) Act puts our most responsible and successful immigrant students on a streamlined path for citizenship, and at the same time motivates all our students to do their best and to stay out of trouble.
This bill would allow motivated immigrant high school graduates to apply for United States citizenship after meeting certain academic requirements, which would replace the naturalization exam, and paying a reduced fee. The Proud Act, mandates that any high school graduate who can furnish transcripts proving completion of grades 6 through 12, displays an understanding of United States history, government and civics, and can prove they are of good moral character be allowed to apply for U.S. citizenship.
