Federal District Court Rules Against DACA Program
A federal district court recently ruled against the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, saying that President Obama overstepped his authority to create the program in 2012.
The ruling legally strips Dreamers of their ability to live and work in the United States, but the appellate judges prohibited immigration officials from deporting anyone that was granted legal status until the US Supreme Court makes a final ruling on the program.
AACTE and its partners strongly urge Congress to pass legislation to finally resolve the legal questions surrounding this program, permit qualified individuals to obtain legal status and pursue their academic dreams.
