Statement by Manne Favor, Executive Director, JFON Houston

Regarding Supreme Court Ruling Stopping the Trump Administration from

Ending Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

Today we celebrate the majority ruling of the United States Supreme Court upholding the immigration program commonly referred to as DACA – Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.  This program protects those who entered the country as children.  It allows them to legally work, attend school and be productive members of our society.

 

While this ruling keeps Dreamers safe for the time being, the ruling should not be viewed as the end game.  This ruling does not stop the Trump administration or any other administration from ending the program in the future.  The ruling simply states that they way in which the administration ended the program violated the Administrative Procedure Act.

 

We must call on Congress to pass meaningful legislation that provides permanent relief for Dreamers, provides a pathway to citizenship and ends the uncertainty forever.

The mission of JFON Houston is to provide low-income individuals and families with affordable, high quality immigration legal services and engage in immigration education and advocacy.
