Trump to Allow DREAMers to Stay - For Now

Trump to Allow DREAMers to Stay - For Now

The program allows undocumented immigrant children who were brought to the United States as minors, widely known as "Dreamers", to stay in the US and obtain working visas. It was meant to keep the immigrant parents safe from deportation and provide them with a renewable work permit good for two years, but it was blocked by a federal judge in Texas after 26 states filed suit against the federal government and challenged the effort's legality.

The formal announcement actually came late Thursday, the same day that parties in the Texas suit challenging the program faced a court deadline in Brownsville to resolve the case.

In its filing yesterday, the Department of Homeland Security set out the history of that litigation.

Kelly formally revoked the policy memo that created the program, which mirrored an earlier effort to protect young immigrants in the country illegally from deportation on June 15.

After the Supreme Court decision, DHS Secretary John Kelly said that "there is no credible path forward to litigate the now enjoined policy".

The program does not give them residency status, but temporarily protects them from deportation and allows them to work legally. "No work permits will be terminated prior to their current expiration dates", the fact sheet says.

Attorney General Ken Paxton today applauded President Trump's decision to revoke a 2014 Obama-era policy memo that created the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) program. That led to disappointment from immigration advocates-including the lawyer quoted above-that Dreamers are still facing an uncertain future.

Kelly's act fulfills part of a campaign promise that President Trump had made to overturn two of Obama's controversial memos on illegal immigration. He vowed to end them immediately.

In April, White House press secretary Sean Spicer explained Trump's reluctance by saying that he "has a heart". However the other policy's sister, known the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans or DAPA also clause would be removed. However, this Obama order became one of the many ways through which Trump administration wants to alienate America from its previous leadership. That injunction eventually was affirmed by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and was left intact by the U.S. Supreme Court.

DAPA could have potentially offered protections to Arturo Hernandez Garcia, who entered the national spotlight after spending nine months living in a church basement to avoid deportation and whose youngest daughter was born in the U.S.

That statement was included at the end of an announcement of the cancellation of a related Obama program, Deferred Action for Parents of Americans, which would have protected the immigrant parents of US citizens. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump delivers an immigration policy speech during a campaign rally at the Phoenix Convention Center. Administration officials pushed back Friday morning on the narrative that the administration had moved to protect DACA.
