Public Description:  

H.R. 218, the PROUD Act, would amnesty and provide citizenship for certain illegal aliens as a reward for graduating high school. Specifically, the alien would have to be under 25 years old at the date of application; complete grades 6 through 12; complete a curriculum that reflects knowledge of United States history, government, and civics; provide transcripts from their school(s), and provide a copy of their high school diploma. This legislation would further reward illegal aliens by reducing the naturalization application fee by 50 percent.
