CELEBRATING A VICTORY FOR COMMON SENSE AND FOR OUR NATION

With the proven success of immigration relief for youth, the fight for reform continues

 

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today marks the three-year anniversary of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which provides undocumented youth who have grown up in the United States the opportunity to obtain temporary relief from deportation. Since its implementation, DACA has helped more than 664,600 young people continue and expand their contributions to their communities while bringing a measure of stability to families across the country. Building on DACA and expanding deferred action will allow recipients to earn higher wages, resulting in an increase to the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) by $230 billion over the next 10 years, according to the Center for American Progress.

This will allow a lower court’s decision to block implementation of initiatives that would allow millions of immigrants to apply for work authorization and protection from deportation to remain in place while the Justice Department’s formal appeal of the lower court’s decision is considered. Below is a statement from Marielena Hincapié, executive director of the National Immigration Law Center:
