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.
