The Future for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

Undocumented immigrants who came as children to the US are desperate for congress to act. Last week a federal appeals court ruled that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was unlawful at its inception. However, the Court did not dismantle the program yet. Legislators need to act before the end of the year if the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is going to remain intact. Thousands find their applications in limbo as they await the final rule on the issue of DACA. Others remain hopeful that at the very least their current DACA status will continue to be...

Remain in Mexico Policy Ends

Remain in Mexico

The Biden Administration tried to end Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), a Trump-era policy, in June of 2021. However, the result was a nationwide injunction. On June 30, 2022, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that the Biden Administration has the authority to end Donald Trump’s Immigration policy known as the “Remain in Mexico” or (MPP), that forced thousands of asylum seekers to remain at the border while waiting for their cases to be adjudicated. Overturning this policy will help end: “putting vulnerable people at risk of higher documented rates of kidnapping, extortion and violence.” If you or a loved...

Title 42

  Democrats and Republicans both warn of another surge of migrants on May 23, when Title 42 is set to end.  Title 42 is a Trump-era policy which was used to designate hundreds of thousands of migrants for “expulsion,” claiming that allowing these migrants to enter would increase the spread of COVID-19 in the U.S. It has been reported that hundreds of migrants have formed caravans heading to the U.S./Mexico border.

Special Immigrant Juvenile Status
