Supreme Court to Hear DACA Appeal
Uncategorized | June 28, 2019
This morning the Supreme Court agreed to hear a consolidation of three cases that probe the constitutionality of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, i.e. the DACA program. These three significant cases arise from litigation out of California, New York, and the District of Columbia, and all led to separate decisions requiring that the Department of Homeland Security continue accepting renewals of application for the program, prior to consolidation before our highest court.
The Court will begin with oral arguments on the question of DACA at the beginning of its next term, in October, and is expected to reach a decision sometime by June of 2020.
With hundreds of thousands of Dreamers and their welfare already front and center of national concern, as evident from recent debates, this case is pivotal to our community and country. Until the Supreme Court reaches its decision or related legislation becomes enacted, Dreamers may continue to renew DACA status.
We at ILC will continue to proudly represent Dreamers in their cases and fight for their dignity through recognition under the law. Check back in the upcoming weeks and months for more updates and to learn more about how to get involved with our advocacy efforts.
Continue the fight, continue the dream!
