A Supreme Court decision, anticipated between now and the end of June, will determine the fate of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. While pollsters report that 84% of Americans support DACA across the political spectrum, there is deep concern that repeated blows to our immigration system has desensitized us all to the impact of these decisions. The end of DACA, which advocates are bracing for, will have devastating ripple effects across our communities nationwide, as a legislative solution such as a DREAM Act has yet to be realized.
Today, the Supreme Court blocked the Trump administration’s attempt to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). While the decision was made on procedural grounds and not on the merits of the program, it nevertheless provides a reprieve for 650,000 immigrants and their families, including more than 250,000 U.S.-citizen children.
Even as the coronavirus sickens Americans by the tens of thousands—and roughly 29,000 DACA recipients risk their lives as healthcare workers—the Supreme Court may still render a decision on the Administration’s ability to terminate Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).
This report looks at CDCUs across the country that have launched micro-loan programs that both help immigrants pay DACA application fee and introduce this predominantly low-income population to mainstream financial services.
Across the country, 202,500 DACA recipients are working to protect the health and safety of Americans as the country confronts COVID-19. They are ensuring that children are still being educated; food is still being grown, packaged, cooked, shipped, and put on the shelves of grocery stores; patients are being cared for; and much more.
Our nation has just completed an incomparable year. A wave of restrictionist policies, championed by some and unthinkable to others, have disrupted families and communities, schools and businesses across the nation. In the wake of these changes, what will the New Year hold?
Last month, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Trump administration’s first attempt to terminate Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), in September 2017, was unlawful. Today, 25 days after the decision, the Supreme Court will certify its judgement in the case, and—under the law—the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will have an unambiguous obligation to fully reinstate DACA.
