"Provides green cards to millions of immigrant workers and families," reads a "FY2022 Budget Resolution Toplines" document released by Senate Democratic leadership.

The bill that's being drafted would also establish a "universal pre-K" program for three and four year olds, and a "new child care benefit for working families."

It also seeks to make "community college tuition-free for 2 years" and establish "the first ever federal paid family and medical leave benefit."
