Dreamer Advocacy Resources

Background
  • Between 1.8 to 2.1 million Dreamers would potentially be eligible to apply for conditional legal status under several legislative proposals introduced in Congress to protect Dreamers, according to the Migration Policy Institute.
  • A legislative solution for Dreamers became more urgent on November 5, 2018 because the Justice Department petitioned the Supreme Court to review immediately three federal court rulings allowing DACA renewals to continue. President Trump ended DACA in September 2017, but three federal district courts issued preliminary injunctions allowing DACA renewals to continue while the court cases make their way through the court system. Now, the Trump administration wants the Supreme Court to review these cases this term without waiting for the Court of Appeals to rule.
