in a U.S. federal court Texas Declared the “Dreamer” program illegal. This means that more successful applications for the program to protect illegal immigrants from deportation are currently excluded. As District Judge Andrew Heenan declared, those who are already registered are not affected by his decision.
With his decision, Henen strengthened the arguments of some states that the then US President Barack Obama Recognize the reform introduced in the immigration law as illegal and take legal action against it. Obama introduced the program by decree in 2012 to protect the children of illegal immigrants from deportation. Because of his hopes of naturalization, he is called a “dreamer”.
About 700,000 people have so far received protection against deportation that is renewable for two years as part of a program called DHAKA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals). This also includes a work permit America.
According to Hannon’s decision, Dhaka is in violation of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA). It specifies how federal officials can develop and issue ordinances. But since hundreds of thousands of affected people are still awaiting a decision on their cases, their decision will not affect them, Heenan said.
Judgment doesn’t mean deportation
“To be clear, the verdict does not require the deportation or prosecution of any DACA participant,” Judge Heenan said. The government may continue to accept applications for admission to the programme. However, it should not be the final decision.
For years, there has been a dispute between Republicans and Democrats regarding DACA. Obama’s successor Donald Trump During his tenure, he tried to reverse the program several times. Soon after taking office in 2017 and as part of his campaign against illegal immigration, Trump announced abolition. before the Supreme Court but was defeated by trump.
Democratic Senator Bob Mendez out new Jersey “Commented the decision as another painful reminder that we cannot continue to rely on short-term immigration solutions”. So Congress must eventually pave the way for millions of unregistered immigrants to have legally protected status.
Neither US President Biden – Obama’s vice president who launched the program – nor any of its spokesmen have commented on the latest decision. Biden endorsed Daca. On his first day in office he announced that he wanted to “protect and strengthen” the program.
