The Court’s decision to overturn the Trump administration’s termination of DACA is a monumental victory for nearly 700,000 DACA recipients, who can now continue to safely live, work, and study in the United States. Today’s decision also returns DACA to its initial form and reopens the DACA program to new applicants. All eligible individuals are encouraged to consult with an immigration attorney to apply for, or renew, their DACA immediately.

The Supreme Court just ruled to preserve protections for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants for now
Today, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled to allow the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program to continue. The Court found that the Trump administration’s decision to terminate the program was “arbitrary and capricious” under the Administrative Procedures Act and failed to consider the hardship to DACA recipients. The ruling allows DACA recipients to continue to receive the protections and benefits of the program.

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).

On June 18, 2020 the U.S. Supreme Court sided with DACA recipients ruling that the way in which the Trump administration rescinded the DACA program in 2017 was unlawful. The decision is a huge victory for immigrant communities and their allies who mobilized to protect the DACA program.

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.
This four-page timeline summarizes immigrant and refugee policy developments and philanthropic responses from 1990 to 2020.
Relentless policy attacks, particularly over the past three years, have put pro-immigrant stakeholders, including funders, on the defensive. Since November 2016, many in philanthropy have allocated significant rapid-response funding to mitigate the impact of this ruthless anti-immigrant onslaught. Philanthropic pushback has been critical to addressing humanitarian needs and has laid the groundwork for long-term efforts to dismantle structural injustices.

The Migrant Justice Platform is a roadmap of Executive and Legislative actions from grassroots voices across the United States and abroad that parts ways from the “single-bill” strategy that has defined immigration politics for two decades. It is a unity blueprint intended as a launching point for an open-source effort that centers grassroots voices on various aspects of immigration reform.
