CAN GET INVOLVED
On Sept. 5, 2017, the Trump administration ended Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), a program that has protected about 800,000 undocumented young people from deportation. This prompted several lawsuits, and lower court decisions have kept DACA on life support. Current beneficiaries can continue renewing their status, but no new applications are being accepted.The end of DACA prompted Congress to seek a permanent solution for immigrant youth. In June, the House passed the American Dream and Promise Act (HR6), giving young immigrants a path to residency. The Senate has yet to take action on the bill. The Supreme Court announced it would hear oral arguments for consolidated DACA cases on Nov. 12. Based on its interpretation of executive power, the court could: Keep DACA as is and not allow new applications to be submitted, expand DACA to accept new applications, suspend DACA immediately with no new renewals and allow existing work permits to expire naturally end DACA immediately, invalidating all work permits instantly in this space.

We are working to activate, educate and organize our community to keep DACA and work for a future permanent solution.
