The figures come from data that the federal government has transmitted to the judge responsible for the case. The complete re-implementation of DACA follows Judge Nicholas Garaufis’ order came nearly six months after the Supreme Court ruled the administration unlawfully ended the policy. The officials not only opposed this decision, but also issued a memo signed by illegal Chad, in which the existing protection was further reduced from two to just one year.
Garaufis “ordered a two-year reinstatement and asked Homeland Security to report how many new applicants were turned down between June and December 4,” the AP said. “The number: 4,383.”
Tumlin said in her thread: “[t]This shows how willing people were to apply, ”but could not because the government objected to the Supreme Court on an order it disliked. Only after the decision by Garaufis in November did the government reopen the DACA (although it also postponed this for a few weeks). However, as Tumlin also notes, most of the applications submitted in recent weeks are not being processed by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS), the immigration service that nearly closed the administration last year for alleged budget concerns.
As Camilo Montoya-Galvez from CBS News noted in his report after the reopeningThe program’s survival in the face of endless attacks that began with the termination of the policy by former Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions in September 2017 has been remarkable. “But DACA survived sessions, ”writes Montoya-Galvez. But the Republicans are still attacking the program. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, one of the country’s most corrupt politicians, is bringing charges to try to kill it in another court.
The judge on this case, anti-immigrant Andrew Hanen, has not made a decision after a hearing late last month. Government of President-Elect Joe Biden has confirmed that it will take steps to protect young undocumented immigrants as soon as they are sworn in, with its new chief of staff Ronald Klain telling NBCs about it Hit the press that “[w]We will protect the dreamers on the first day. ”
When Hanen rules against DACA, immigration policy experts say the executive still has a lot of leeway when it comes to protecting young immigrants and their families. “The Biden administration has to be smart because there is an unfortunate good chance that Judge Hanen will knock down the DACA the same day the announcement is made,” said Aaron Reichlin-Melnick of the American Immigration Council tweeted in November. “You should be ready to use alternatives like Parole in Place or Deferred Enforced Departure. “But DACA is still in the moment and proponents like Tumlin continue to urge young immigrants to keep applying.
Perhaps the most important thing is that DACA is open and that there is something you can do – yes, you – to help. Donate any size to the @ UNITEDWEDREAM DACA Renewal Fund to provide fee assistance to people applying for DACA. https://t.co/uuoO9G2Nfs 8/8
