    Admin Revokes Blocked Program to Protect Immigrant Parents (DAPA)

    Admin Revokes Blocked Program to Protect Immigrant Parents



    Thursday, June 15, 2017 10:51 PM




    By: By ALICIA A. CALDWELL


    The Trump administration is formally revoking an Obama-era program intended to protect immigrant parents of U.S. citizens and legal residents from deportation.


    The Deferred Action for Parents of Americans program was announced by the Obama administration in 2014 but was blocked by a federal judge in Texas after 26 states challenged the program's legality in federal court.


    Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly formally revoked the policy memo that created the program, which mirrored an earlier effort to protect young immigrants in the country illegally from deportation, late Thursday. It was revoked five years to the day President Barack Obama announced the protection efforts for young immigrants.


    Revoking the memo and ending the stalled program fulfills a key campaign promise from President Donald Trump, who pledged to "immediately" cancel both efforts.

    1/2 of the promise ended. The President promised to revoke DACA and DAPA day one. This is not enough to follow through on "America First" and hire American. It is not enough to reverse some of the costs and destruction to the lives of the American people. On this issue, Secretary Kelly is against the best interests of the American people and for foreign citizens who illegally entered.

    DACA is continuing under President Trump, amnesty is being given, the door to citizenship is being given through Advanced Parole. Democrats and some Republicans do not want to limit the numbers of those who receive DACA as they work to craft legislation in Congress. The parents and other family members will be included to keep families together.

    DACA must end. No more renewals or new applications.

    Trump admin ends Obama-era protection of undocumented immigrant parents

    BY JOHN BOWDEN - 06/15/17 10:31 PM EDT


    The Trump administration on Thursday night ended an Obama-era policy that protected undocumented immigrants with children who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents, known as DAPA or Deferred Action for Parents of Americans, according to multiple news reports.



    Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly sent a memo to agents Thursday telling them not to follow the Obama-era rule, which was enacted by his predecessor Jeh Johnson in November of 2014.


    In a press release, the Department of Homeland Security said that it was ending the DAPA program because there was "no credible path forward to litigate the currently enjoined policy."


    DAPA has been embroiled in legal battles since 2015, when it was put on hold. Texas and 25 other states filed a lawsuit to block President Obama's policy which would have granted deferred deportation to nearly 5 million undocumented immigrants.

    DHS rescinds Obama-era DAPA policy that would have protected illegal immigrant


    June 15, 2017

    Anna Giaritelli


    The Department of Homeland Security on Thursday rescinded an Obama-era immigration policy that had allowed for deferred action for parents of Americans and lawful permanent residents, which was known as DAPA.


    DHS Secretary John Kelly signed a memo on Thursday directing his employees not to carry out an instruction his predecessor, Jeh Johnson, had put in writing in November 2014 that sought to extend a 2012 program aimed at the illegal immigrant community.
    Kelly made the decision to revoke the policy because "there is no credible path forward to litigate the currently enjoined policy" due to its current entanglement in the courts, his office said in a statement.


    The 2014 Johnson memos had been intended as extensions of Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, the 2012 policy that permitted illegal immigrants who entered the U.S. as minors to receive a two-year period of deferred action and work permit. DACA permits would last two years and could be renewed if the individual remained in good legal standing. The program also allowed recipients to become eligible for state-managed public benefits.




    Under DAPA, recipients would have had to be a parent of a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident as of Nov. 20, 2014; have continuously resided in the U.S. before Jan. 1, 2010; have been physically present in the U.S. on Nov. 20, 2014 and when applying for relief; have no lawful immigration status on that date; have not fallen within the secretary's enforcement priorities; and have presented no other factors that, in the exercise of discretion, make the grant of deferred action inappropriate.




    2015 report by the Migration Policy Institute estimated 3.6 million illegal immigrant parents would have been eligible for DAPA.
    But DAPA was never implemented.




    In early 2015, 26 states responded to the months-old announcement with a lawsuit against the Obama administration in the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of Texas. The states alleged the program violated the Constitution and federal statutes. The majority of the states that took legal action identified as red states.


    The program was put on hold for the next two years as it wound its way through the courts. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit affirmed the district court's decision, and the Supreme Court ultimately granted the lower court's injunction to remain in place.




    The now-defunct DAPA policy also would have changed the DACA program's two-year extension to three-year terms.


    President Trump's hardline stance on immigration has remained resolute, but wavered at times since he took office nearly five months ago. Trump admitted he wanted to show compassion to people in the U.S. illegally, but has been adamant about eradicating all future illegal immigration by enforcing all immigration laws and creating a secure wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.



    The White House has not issued a statement on the newly announced DHS decision.

    This really hasn't accomplished anything in my view because the courts had already rejected DAPA.

    Admin revokes blocked program to protect immigrant parents

    Admin revokes blocked program to protect immigrant parents

    WASHINGTON (AP) — An Obama-era immigration program intended to protect parents of U.S. citizens and legal residents from deportation has been formally cancelled, fulfilling a key campaign promise from President Donald Trump, the Homeland Security Department announced late Thursday.

    Homeland Security John Kelly formally revoked a policy memo that created the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans program. The revocation came on the fifth anniversary of another effort that has protected hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation.

    The program to protect parents was announced by President Barack Obama in November 2014 but was never fully launched. It was intended to keep the immigrant parents safe from deportation and provide them with a renewable work permit good for two years, but it was blocked by a federal judge in Texas after 26 states filed suit against the federal government and challenged the effort's legality. Republicans decried the effort at "backdoor amnesty" and argued that Obama overstepped his authority by protecting a specific class of immigrants living in the United States illegally.

    The protection program for parents, like the one for young immigrants, was created with a policy memo during the Obama administration. Both programs required that participants meet certain conditions, including not having a criminal history. As part of the expansion to protect immigrant parents living in the United States illegally, the Obama administration also sought to provide the young immigrants with work permits good for three years at a time. That provision was also blocked by the Texas judge.

    Revoking the memo and ending the stalled program fulfill a key campaign promise by Trump, who pledged to "immediately" cancel both efforts. Trump has not said what he plans to do about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, but so far most immigrants protected by the effort have not been targeted by stepped-up efforts to find and deport immigrants living in the country illegally. As of March 31, about 787,000 young immigrants have been approved for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, according to government data.

    Arrests of immigrants in the interior of the country have increased under the Trump administration, but deportations are slightly down as fewer people have been caught crossing the Mexican border into the United States illegally.

    Trump has made immigration enforcement a top priority and has vowed to continue a crackdown on those living in U.S. illegally and those trying to sneak into the country.

    Obviously DACA did not expire today, June 15th.

    I told you all the "thinking was to let it expire in June". I did a lot of research on this and posted it all on ALIPAC months ago. It was a 3 year renewal of the DACA program with an expansion of DACA to allow more into the program and add their parents through the DAPA. All of that has been "expired", revoked with a MEMO on the anniversary date of DACA 2012, June 15.

    Texas, the 26 States and the DOJ will now file some paperwork with the Courts to dismiss the lawsuit because today's action makes it moot.

    Thank you DOJ, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, DHS Secretary Kelly, and President Donald J Trump. Thank you very very much!
