New Mexico congressional delegation is sponsoring a bill that would permanently protect DACA recipients.

Assistant Speaker Ben Ray Lujan, Representative Deb Haaland and Xochitl Torres Small are cosponsoring the Dream and Promise Act.

The act would protect about 2.5 million immigrants brought to the United States as children. DACA is currently being upheld by court rulings after the president ended the program.
