Sign the petition: Demand the Trump administration immediately accept applications for DACA recipients and stop openly defying the Supreme Court.
No one should live in fear of being torn from their families and communities. But that’s exactly what Trump tried to do when he rescinded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), the Obama-era program that allows 700,000 immigrants to live and work in the United States legally. Hundreds of thousands of people who came to the U.S. as children were facing deportation under Trump’s efforts to end DACA.
This past June, the Supreme Court ruled that the administration’s actions were “arbitrary and capricious” under federal law and therefore DENIED the DACA repeal. The Trump administration was ordered to restore DACA to its pre-repeal condition.
But Trump didn’t like that ruling, so now he is openly defying the Supreme Court.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) maintains that it will reject new DACA applicants. It also plans to cut DACA renewals to one year instead of two years, which will require immigrant youth to pay more every year for protections from deportation. The agency circulated a memo to reiterate their policy stance.
DACA recipients need their permits in order to stay protected from deportation and continue working, driving, and providing financial and emotional stability to themselves and their loved ones.
We will not stand for it!
We must demand the USCIS immediately reverse their current policy, comply with the Supreme Court and once again begin accepting new and renewed applications for DACA recipients.
