Immigration Policy

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.

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.
