Supreme Court says DACA must continue for now

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, remains in place for now. The U.S. Supreme Court, which is one of the primary checks and balances to the White House, declined to hear an appeal by the Trump administration that sought to end DACA.

The appeal itself was unusual, because it sought to overrule a federal judge's ruling, which the Supreme Court rarely does. The ruling it sought to overturn compels the government to keep the DACA program going, despite the Trump administration's announcement that it planned to discontinue it on March 5. According to the lower court's order, which is still in place, the Department of Homeland Security continues to take in renewal applications for current DACA recipients.

This forced continuation of the DACA program does allow DACA recipients to breathe a little easier, but the fight of fair treatment for all people in America is far from settled. Over the last several months, it seems as though DACA recipients faced a new threat every several days, from many different parties. As the country continues to debate the politics of immigration, thousands of people throughout the country live in ongoing fear for their future.

If you or someone you love faces immigration difficulties, it is important to understand your legal rights and the legal tools you have to fight for justice, both for yourself and for others. An experienced immigration law attorney can help you understand these issues and create legal strategies to fight for your safety and dignity, protecting your rights and privileges from those who would take them away.
