Public Description:  

The bill would amnesty certain illegal aliens under the pretense of providing educational opportunities for children. This version is similar language to S.3963 except Sen. Durbin made a number of modifications to counter specific areas of opposition to the bill. Specifically, this new version would: add additional categories of conditional status ineligibility such as health related grounds, student visa abusers, aliens deemed permanently ineligible, unlawful voters, marriage fraud, and public charge violations; allow the Secretary of Homeland Security to waive all grounds of ineligibility; add new biometric data and background check requirements; add a new medical observation and examination requirement; make conditional status now valid for 10 years as opposed to 6; add work authorization for conditional status aliens; add express authorization for travel outside U.S.; make removal of conditional status 11 years as opposed to 8; and allow DHS to use criminal investigation or Brady Act background check data.

A bill to authorize the cancellation of removal and adjustment of status of certain alien students who are long-term United States residents and who entered the United States as children and for other purposes.
