                 “DREAMERS” KEEP ON DREAMING

WASHINGTON, Feb 26 – Just this morning the United States Supreme Court refused to even consider President Trump’s appeal of a federal judge’s Jan. 9 injunction which effectively checked Trump’s attempts to end a program that provides benefits to immigrant children who were brought into the United States illegally.

This decision on DACA, or lack thereof, will effectively require President Trump’s administration to continue providing the same protections that he was hoping to bring to an end.

The repeal of the Federal program, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, better known as “Dreamers,” would have affected the lives of approximately 700,000 young adults, predominately Hispanics, who are now granted immunity from deportation. They are issued work permits for a period two-years, after which the youngsters are required by law to reapply for them, or forfeit those benefits.

Approximately 1.8 million persons, a large fraction of more than 11 million immigrants now living in the United States illegally, are eligible for the program implemented in 2012 by then President Barack Obama.

The Trump administration had argued that Obama exceeded his authority under U.S. Constitutional law when he bypassed Congress and created DACA.

Under President Trump’s appeal, the protections for “Dreamers,” if granted, would have begun phasing out in March of this year had the Supreme Court granted President Trumps motion.

In a brief order issued by the court, the justices did not explain their reason for refusing to hear the motion but stated that the appeal had been “denied without prejudice,” which indicates that they are still open to hearing further motions pertaining to the underlying legal issue which is still being considered by a lower court of appeals. The Supreme Court  Justices further warned that same appellate court to “proceed expeditiously to decide this case.”

In April the Supreme Court is slated to hear arguments regarding the legality of President Trump’s travel ban order which bars entry to people from a number of nations which have a population consisting mostly of Muslim peoples.
