President Biden and congressional Democrats to unveil immigration bill

"We feel like the law is already there, no need to have added enforcement mechanisms", said one senior administration official who spoke with ABC News on the condition of anonymity to discuss plans for the proposal.

The largest percentage of undocumented immigrants come from Mexico, according to the Pew Research Center.

- Numerous people with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) protection, known as "Dreamers", who were brought to the United States illegally as children and people with Temporary Protected Status would immediately be eligible to apply for a green card and would have a three-year path to citizenship.

The proposal, sketched out by the administration on Inauguration Day, would include an 8-year path to citizenship for illegal immigrants - a path that includes a five year path to a green card and a three-year path to citizenship after background checks and other steps.

Frank Sharry, executive director of America's Voice, an advocacy organization, said passing citizenship through reconciliation is "the best shot we have this year".

Removing factors that spur people to migrate is also a major aim of the legislative push, with $4 billion over four years dedicated to improving conditions and reducing corruption in places that are common origins of migration. It would eliminate the penalty barring those immigrants who live in the USA without authorization and who then leave the country from returning for three to 10 years.

The bill also reforms legal immigration processes by no longer counting spouses and minor children against a country's share of allotted visas.

The bill would expand transnational anti-drug task forces in Central America and enhances technology at the border. The bill will be introduced in the House by California Democrat Linda Sánchez and, a week later, in the upper chamber by Sen.

"It's time to bring all 11 million undocumented out of the shadows", said Democratic Senator Bob Menendez.

It tries to prevent people from taking the unsafe journey north by setting up refugee processing centers in Central America.

Conversely, if they wait for Republican support, Congress could be looking at another failed attempt at immigration reform.

There are no Republicans known to be on board as of now, and some Republicans who had been part of past efforts, such as the 2013 bill that cleared the Senate, have already rejected Mr.

Biden has characterized his bill as a way to reimagine immigration in the United States after the Trump administration clamped down on it, and the measure addresses details such as replacing the word "alien" with "noncitizen".

While Biden is pushing a comprehensive bill, he suggested earlier this week he may be open to a more piecemeal approach.

That could leave the door open to standalone bills focused on providing a pathway to citizenship for various populations. That´s why he proposed them together'.
