WASHINGTON, D.C. — This morning the Supreme Court announced that it will consider whether the Trump administration’s ending of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was lawful.
The court will rule sometime before next summer. DACA recipients will face heightened uncertainty in the meantime — unless Congress acts.
“Congress need not cede its authority to the Supreme Court,” said Ali Noorani, Executive Director of the National Immigration Forum. “The Senate should pass the bipartisan Dream Act and work with the House, whose Dream and Promise Act passed with bipartisan support.
“Congress should cement the contributions of Dreamers, TPS and DED recipients and provide some certainty for American employers and workers. Most Americans want these kinds of bipartisan solutions.”
