Today, Senator Jon Kyl's office announced that he, in partnership with Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, introduced legislation that would give young, undocumented residents of the United States, brought here as children, a path to citizenship.
But, just in case you thought it might be, it's not the DREAM Act. After all, that provides a special path to citizenship, and we can't have that, can we?
No, this is the similarly cheerful-sounding ACHIEVE Act, which creates potential roads to citizenship for undocumented immigrants without creating some sort of special, unfair path that skips most of the board and proceeds directly to Go. It's just, y'know, new legislation to do so.
