This is where everything goes these days.
It goes into limbo in federal court where these cases are litigated and digested for years. The final outcome often isn’t reached until years later. We’ve been fighting over DACA for eight years now.
“A federal district judge in Texas has ruled against the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, striking a blow to the Obama-era policy that has protected more than 800,000 young undocumented immigrants from deportation since 2012.
The largely expected decision leaves the fate of thousands of the program’s beneficiaries, known as DREAMers, in the hands of Congress, the Biden administration and a Supreme Court where conservatives hold a 6-3 majority.
U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen ruled in favor of nine conservative-led states, including Texas, blocking the Biden administration from accepting new DACA applicants – saying the program is not legal.
However, the ruling allows for immigrants currently protected by the program to keep their status and allow DACA renewals while the case goes through the appeals process. …”
This ruling doesn’t apply to the vast majority of DACA recipients. It is more of a speed bump. Still though, there isn’t much good news to report on the immigration front.
