    This is one of the few cases I have seen where the amicus briefs make a much better case than the parties' briefs. In fact, the government's defense of DACA rescission has been so pathetic that one might suspect the deep state within DHS has been sabotaging Trump all along.
  • House Democrats' coronavirus package includes ‘amnesty’ for some illegal immigrants, critics say

    The $3 trillion coronavirus relief package released by House Democrats this week includes protections for illegal immigrants who work in jobs declared “essential” -- a move that Republicans are blasting as an attempt at “amnesty.” The mammoth bill includes a section on page 1,737 on “temporary protections for essential critical infrastructure workers.”

    When Luz Chavez was growing up, she dreamed of someday becoming the secretary of the Department of Education, she told ABC News. Now, a student at Trinity Washington University, her future is uncertain, as she is one of hundreds of thousands who were brought to the United States as a child and is permitted to stay in the country without risk of deportation under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy. Caught in the crosshairs of Washington’s partisan bickering, DACA recipients, who already don’t qualify for federal student aid, are in turn ineligible for the emergency cash grants dispersed by...
  • Why this ICU nurse treating Covid patients could be deported [DACA]

    The US Supreme Court is considering a case that could put hundreds and thousands of people who were brought into the country illegally as children at risk of deportation. Some of those are healthcare workers dealing with the coronavirus pandemic. At the beginning of April a long line of police cars snaked slowly around a hospital in Winston-Salem, North Carolina with their blue lights flashing in the bright sun. It was a tribute, they said, to the healthcare workers risking their lives to treat patients with Covid-19. But for Jonathan Vargas Andres, an ICU nurse treating Covid patients in that...

    ... There were 35 amicus briefs filed in oppositions to the rescission of DACA. Among them, I could only find 10 that could generously be classified as making serious legal arguments. Within this group, the brief of Administrative Law Scholars was particularly good and is worth reading by those interested in the DACA legal issues. For the most part, the amicus briefs are naked political documents. Many rely on anecdotes as evidence that would be inadmissible in a court of law. Some attempt to be relevant to law by tacking a legal argument already made by the parties to the...
  • DeVos Blocks DACA Students From Coronavirus Aid

    When Congress passed the CARES Act to provided relief from the coronavirus impact, it sent about $14 billion to institutions of higher education to address the unique impact the virus has had on college campuses. Colleges and universities had been waiting for the Department of Education to release guidance to detail how exactly schools could allocate the grant money, including who is eligible. Today, Secretary Betsy DeVos and the Department released new guidance to address that and more. In the guidance, DeVos chose to limit the students eligible for the grant aid to those eligible for federal student financial aid...

    For Aldo Martinez, a paramedic in Fort Myers, Fla., who often works a 37-hour shift, the long days have become routine since the coronavirus pandemic broke out -- several of his colleagues have had to self-quarantine out of fears they may have been exposed to COVID-19. Aside from filling in for his colleagues, tending to the dozens of calls he receives each day, and keeping himself safe on the job, Aldo feels an extra degree of pressure as one of more nearly 680,000 young immigrants whose ability to work in the country would be threatened if the Deferred Action for...

    A slate of progressive youth groups have issued a list of demands they want to see presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden adopt ahead of the general election. Eight progressive groups said in a joint letter released Wednesday that they feared Biden’s centrist policies would alienate younger voters, who trend more liberal, and hinder Democrats’s efforts to unseat President Trump in November. The groups noted that while Biden racked up delegates with a March winning spree, he consistently ceded voters under 45 years old to Sanders in the primaries.

    Illegal aliens who are recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program argued to the Supreme Court on Friday that the program should be preserved because of the coronavirus. In a letter to the justices, lawyers for Dreamers claimed that there are 27,000 DACA recipients working in health care jobs. “The pandemic sheds new light on the reliance interests of healthcare providers and the public health consequences of ignoring those interests,” the lawyers wrote. They argued that the fact that some DACA recipients work as home health aides and such is a reason why the Supreme Court should...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has slipped into her coronavirus plan a quasi-amnesty for hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens enrolled in former President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. On Tuesday, Pelosi released another revised version of House Democrats’ plan in the midst of the coronavirus crisis, which includes: A nationwide mandate for ballot harvesting $300 million for foreign refugees abroad An automatic visa extension for all foreign workers An expansion of foreign-language ballots Same-day voter registration for the 2020 presidential election Slipped into the plan is an amnesty for the nearly 700,000 to 800,000 DACA illegal...

    President Donald Trump and a group of GOP senators quickly rejected a DACA amnesty deal pushed by Sen. Lindsey Graham on Thursday afternoon – but left the door open to future negotiations. They will now wait until after the Supreme Court decides on the legality of Barack Obama’s work permit giveaway to 800,000 younger illegals, says multiple media reports. The quick amnesty pitch by Graham (R-SC) was rejected when GOP Senators urged Trump to wait until the court releases its decision, due by June. The court’s decision may give Trump more leverage as he tries to get an immigration reform...

    The Supreme Court could soon overturn the temporary protections for people who came to the country illegally as children. President Donald Trump will consider protecting Dreamers who came to the country illegally as children as part of a larger immigration deal later this year, thrusting the contentious issue into the heart of election season, according to five people familiar with the situation. Trump told Republican senators at the White House Thursday that he will punt on a proposal until after an upcoming Supreme Court ruling that could overturn the temporary protections for Dreamers the Obama administration implemented, known as the...

    President Trump has turned his back on hundreds of thousands of children and young immigrants who came forward and put their trust in our government. This Administration has chosen to ignore what American voters have said they think is right. Nearly 80 percent of voters want to protect the legal status of Dreamers.Ending the program is devastating not just for recipients, but for our economy. California businesses would lose more than a billion dollars in turnover costs. Attorney General Sessions claims this decision is full of "compassion," but real compassion would be treating Dreamers "with heart," as President Trump himself...

    We’re not sure what Joe Biden is hoping to do, except to pander, by continually asserting that DACA students are in many ways more American than most Americans. Back in January, he told a crowd in Iowa that DACA recipients are “in many cases, more American than most Americans are, because they have done well in school. They believe in basic principles we all share.”

    Former Vice President and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said the fact Obama administration deported 3 million undocumented immigrants, many of whom had no criminal records, “was a big mistake.” “We took far too long to get it right,” Biden said in a Friday interview with Univision’s Jorge Ramos in Henderson, Nevada. Biden said the administration did not begin to “get it right” with regard to immigration until after its first term. The former vice president also did dispute that the administration deported more people than any administration before them as well as the Trump administration, though that fact has...

    A Harvard study's findings show how not to fight the restrictionist disinformation campaign.A recent Harvard study found that people in Western countries, including America, have succumbed to many restrictionist myths. The right-wing campaign against immigration has worked. But that doesn't mean that immigration advocates should despair. The study's findings suggest that to the extent that they can make the case that immigrants don't need handouts to succeed, they have a shot at turning public opinion around. The study, conducted by economists Alberto Alesina, Armando Miano, and Stefanie Stantcheva, administered online questionnaires to 24,000 respondents in six countries: U.S., U.K.,...
