A recent Supreme Court decision rejected the termination of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program—allowing the nearly 600,000 current recipients to continue renewing their cases and eligible individuals to present their initial applications for protection under this immigration program. Despite this victory for immigrant advocates, there is still much uncertainty about the future of the DACA program. Allison S. Davenport and Veronica Garcia, both with the Immigrant Legal Resource Center, will unpack the high court’s decision and the possible scenarios that lay ahead.
This Briefing will provide:
- An overview of the Supreme Court’s decision and what it means for current DACA recipients and DACA-eligible individuals
- An update on the current state of the DACA program, eligibility criteria, and considerations for practitioners as they advise community members about their legal options
- An analysis of potential scenarios given a second termination effort, a new executive action, or federal legislation and what the immigrant community can do to be prepared to navigate this shifting landscape
