Congresswoman Deborah Ross with twenty two US lawmakers including Indian American congressmen Ami Bera and RO Khanna submitted a letter to the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and senate majority leader Chuck Schumer yesterday.

The letter insisted the congressional leadership to include a permanent path to residency for Documented Dreamers in any upcoming budget reconciliation bill.

"Documented Dreamers'' are the children, who live in the U. S. as dependents of long-term nonimmigrant visa holders, including H-1B visa. Once the children turn 21, they lose their dependent status as a result of which the fear of deportation has increased among several Indian American children.
