Update on DACA, “The Village Speaks” discussion on systemic racism, living as an undocumented Black immigrant, and more!
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 future is even less certain for those in a Dreamer’s orbit. 'They’re most concerned about the family members that they provided information about in order to apply,' said Katharine Gin, executive director of Immigrants Rising, whom Courthouse News spoke to in May about the mental toll on Dreamers awaiting the ruling."
“While this decision is certainly a win, DACA was never intended to be a long-term solution and the majority of undocumented youth today are not eligible for the protections and opportunities afforded by the DACA program. We urge Congress to pass immigration reform that will enable undocumented youth and their families to thrive in the United States,” wrote Katharine Gin, executive director at Immigrants Rising.
The Supreme Court rules in favor of DACA. DACA recipients will continue to receive benefits and protections.
"Hundreds of people around the nation tuned in to listen to an important and urgent conversation about the intersections of being Black and undocumented in the United States as well as taking action to stop the ongoing dehumanization and terrorism of Black lives."
