The BRIDGE Act would extend "provisional protected presence" to DACA-eligible individuals. Under the terms of the bill, a current DACA recipient would receive provisional protected status until the expiration date of his or her DACA status. An individual who is not a DACA recipient but who is eligible for DACA could also apply for provisional protected presence. As with DACA, applicants would be required to pay a reasonable fee, be subject to criminal background checks, and meet a number of eligibility criteria indicating that they came to the United States as minors, grew up in this country, have pursued an education, have not committed any serious crimes, and do not pose a threat to our country.
