The Trump administration is moving forward with the first major piece of legislation to address the nation’s immigration crisis.
President Donald Trump signed the bill Thursday, a bipartisan measure that gives undocumented immigrants temporary relief from deportation, the White House said.
Trump signed the legislation at the Whitehouse.
Trump signed an executive order this week to provide the same relief to millions of undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children.
The White House did not say how many people could qualify for the relief.
President Trump has said that if he’s elected president, he would begin work immediately on a new executive order that would give people in the U:P.
The White House had initially said the relief would apply to those who have been convicted of certain crimes.
But that was later dropped, saying it was not possible to verify that those convicted criminals are actually deportable.
