What is going on with DACA now?
It seems like we are stuck in a never-ending cycle of no action being taken on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals issue. What we do know is that the US Supreme Court is going to meet behind closed doors to discuss taking up a case during their next term. The case they are considering hearing concerns the phase-out of DACA.
As it stands, multiple lower courts have blocked attempts by the Executive Branch to rescind DACA. The administration has appealed all of these lower court decisions to the Supreme Court, which has so far not responded. If the Court decides to hear a DACA case, it will happen in the middle of 2020 – a presidential election year.
What is at stake?
DACA recipients, known as Dreamers, were those brought to this country as minors. Many of them have absolutely no memory of their home country. In fact, calling anything other than the US their home country seems absurd. Some of them do not even speak Spanish. They have grown up here, gone to school here, and many of them have professional careers here. Many Dreamers are in the US military. Others are teachers, college professors, and doctors.
- In every way other than an official piece of paper, DACA recipients are citizens of this country.
- More than 800,000 Dreamers have been left in legal limbo for years now.
The DACA program started in 2012 as a way to protect all of these people brought here as minors (before the age of 16).
What are the alternatives?
If DACA is rescinded, what happens to the more than 800,000 people in the program? Will it mean mass deportation of those who have never revisited their country of birth?
