Biden makes good on promise to appeal DACA decision

Biden makes good on promise to appeal DACA decision

On Friday, September 10, 2021, Biden’s DOJ (Department of Justice) filed a Notice of Appeal in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, asking to reverse federal Judge Andrew Hanen’s decision on DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals).

It is important to explain that DACA is a deportation relief program implemented in 2012 by the Obama administration, which protects young immigrants known as Dreamers for two years with the possibility of extension.

Dreamers are immigrants who came to the US as minors and who, for the vast majority, have lived here for as long as they can remember and are now essential workers in all kinds of local market sectors.

When Judge Hanen suspended new enrollments in the DACA program in mid-July, President Biden issued a statement, promising that his administration would challenge the judge’s decision.

Why did the judge in charge of the case decide to suspend DACA?

Judge Hanen, for the Southern District of Texas, stated that the Obama administration did not follow regular protocols when implementing DACA in 2012 and, therefore, it is an illegitimate program.

According to the Texas judge’s verdict:

  • Initial DACA applications cannot be approved.
  • Dreamers who are already DACA recipients are not affected by the verdict, but their future is still uncertain.

Dreamers hope Biden’s actions will open a new path for them

DACA is an immigration benefit that currently protects more than 600,000 Dreamers, who, thanks to this program, have been able to study and work legally.

It is imperative to recognize that Dreamers came to the country as children and, therefore, it was most likely not entirely their decision to cross the borders without legal documentation.

President Biden has every intention of opening a path to citizenship for Dreamers, but the reality is that the Texas judge’s ruling represents a major setback for his administration.

Irregular migration never brings positive repercussions and could be an extremely dangerous journey.

Immigration reform could also be close at hand

Hundreds of thousands of Dreamers and other immigrant communities are still hopeful that Congress will pass Biden’s 2022 budget package, which includes an immigration resolution.

This immigration resolution proposes to open a path to legalization for thousands of Dreamers, undocumented farmworkers and other essential foreign workers, which would boost the national economy.
