    Donald Trump Extends DACA, Denies New Entrants

    Donald Trump Extends DACA, Denies New Entrants

    President Donald Trump is delaying his commitment to re-cancel the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, a senior administration official told reporters Tuesday.

    “The administration is now undertaking a comprehensive review of the program,” the official said.

    Pending completion of the review, the administration will not approve new entrants, but will provide one-year renewals of work permits first provided by President Barack Obama to roughly 800,000 illegal immigrants, the official said.

    The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program was created by Obama to provide work permits and exemptions from deportation during the post-2008 recession.

    The Supreme Court, however, blocked the administration’s 2017 cancellation of the DACA program, saying officials had not provided an adequate explanation of the cancellation.

    “The administration is disappointed about the Court’s decision and continues to doubts the program’s legality,” the official said, adding that the program is also being challenged in several districts.

    The administration will sharply limit requests by DACA recipients for “Advanced Parole,” the official said. Since 2012, the Advanced Parole rule was used by tens of thousands of DACA beneficiaries to help them win green cards.


    The administration official said:

    When the administration next acts on DACA, it will be on the basis of the comprehensive review of the substantive legal and legal policy justification offered for winding down the program.

    Obviously, to do this correctly and thoughtfully, the review will have to take time.

    We won’t weigh in on how long that will take because it’s a question of a careful review of all the [2017 and 2018] documentation that was provided to the Deputy Secretary [Elaine] Duke, Attorney General [Jeff] Sessions, Secretary [Kirstjen] Nielson, in the formation of their memos.

    In the meantime, the administration will take the following action on the existing DACA program: All initial requests and application fees submitted for new filings will be rejected without prejudice [for reactivation] should the policy be retained the DACA policy be retained following administration’s review.

    We will adjudicate all applications for renewal on a case-by-case basis consistent with immigration statute, providing one-year, rather than the exiting two-year renewals. And consistent with this policy and the reasoning behind the original [Janet] Napolitano departmental memo, all applications for Advance Parole will be rejected, absent extraordinary circumstances.

    [The] forthcoming memo issued today from the Department of Homeland Security will lay out the background and the pending action in greater detail.

    I’ll just say here in conclusion: These actions will limit the scope of the program, while DHS and the administration review its legality, justifications for a possible wind-down, and other considerations relevant to deciding whether to keep or wind down the DACA policy.

    “Advanced Parole” is the open door to legal presence and a potential path to citizenship. This is what the illegal aliens and their front groups have been demanding to return. “Advanced parole“ is a legal way to exit the country and a legal path to re-enter the United States which can lead to citizenship. “Extraordinary Circumstances” will mean whatever the determiner decides as we have seen in other immigration matters.

    Trump administration to reject new applications for 'Dreamer' immigrant program


    July 28, 2020


    Steve Holland


    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump’s administration, bolstering his tough immigration stance in an election year, said on Tuesday it will reject any new applications for the so-called “Dreamer” immigrant program and shorten the deportation protections of those whose eligibility is soon to expire and needs renewal.


    A senior administration official said there would be a lengthy review of a Supreme Court ruling last month that found the administration had erred in the way that it had decided to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, in which some 644,000 immigrants are enrolled.

    The review is likely to take at least 100 days, putting off any final decision on the program until after the Nov. 3 election in which Trump is fighting for a second term against Democrat Joe Biden.

    The administration said it would consider ending the program, which shields from deportation hundreds of thousands of immigrants living in the United States illegally after entering as children - a group often called ‘Dreamers.’

    The administration plans to continue its existing policy of not accepting new DACA applicants, a policy in place since 2017, the official told Reuters. It will extend the eligibility by a year for those DACA immigrants whose protection from deportation was due to expire, as long as they do not have a criminal record, the official said.

    The previous policy had been to extend the eligibility for two years.

    In addition, a memorandum issued by the Department of Homeland Security said permits allowing DACA recipients to travel outside the country would only be issued in “exceptional circumstances.”

    “These actions will limit the scope of the program while DHS and the administration review its legality, justifications for a possible wind-down and other considerations relevant to deciding whether to keep or wind down the DACA policy,” the official said.

    In justifying his concerns about the policy, acting secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf said he was concerned the program was sending “mixed messages” on immigration enforcement.

    “DACA makes clear that, for certain large classes of individuals, DHS will at least tolerate, if not affirmatively sanction, their ongoing violation of the immigration laws,” the memo said.

    He said that while recent border crossers are not eligible for the program, keeping it in place “creates some risk” of encouraging future illegal crossings of children “by suggesting a potential for similar future policies.”

    Trump has made his hardline stance on both legal and illegal immigration a central platform of his presidency and his 2020 re-election campaign, but DACA is a complicated issue for him because of increasing public support of the program.

    A February Reuters/Ipsos poll found 64% of U.S. adult respondents supported DACA’s core tenets. A similar December 2014 poll found that 47% of U.S. adults supported DACA.

    DECISION CRITICIZED

    Leon Rodriguez, former director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services under President Barack Obama, said the Trump administration’s move to limit the scope of the DACA program - which was introduced in 2012 under Obama - appeared to go against the intent of the Supreme Court ruling.

    “So they think they can get away with half ending DACA renewals and persisting in not opening up first time DACA applications?” Rodriguez said. “Doubt that’s what the Supreme Court had in mind.”

    Sanaa Abrar, advocacy director for immigrant rights organization United We Dream, said it was “outrageous they are absolutely refusing to do what the Supreme Court ruled, which was to return the program to its original 2012 state.”

    “We know that multiple federal courts have been on our side, not just about the wrongful way the administration ended the program but about the validity of the original program,” Abrar said.

    The Supreme Court left the door open for Trump to attempt again to rescind the program, ruling only that the administration had not met procedural requirements and its actions were “arbitrary and capricious” under a federal law called the Administrative Procedure Act.

    The administration filed paperwork with the district court in Maryland on Tuesday clarifying its plan.

    The official said the administration will conduct “an exhaustive review” of the memos that it initially used to justify the winding down of the program.

    “We’re going to review all of that and all the underlying communications that informed those documents, so that when the administration next acts on DACA, it will be anchored on this comprehensive review,” the official said.

    Trump, in an interview with Noticias Telemundo earlier this month, said he would soon unveil an immigration measure that he said would include some protections for DACA.

    “We’re working out the legal complexities right now, but I’m going to be signing a very major immigration bill as an executive order, which the Supreme Court now, because of the DACA decision, has given me the power to do that,” Trump said.

    Deport them all and their minor children!

    Their children ARE citizens of their country, they go apply for a Birth Certificate there.

    DACA is illegal. Anchor babies are NOT U.S. citizens.

    No applications, no extension, get out and get in line like everybody else.

    NO PAPERS, THEN NO ENTRY, AND NO RIGHTS HERE! GO GET YOUR RIGHTS BACK HOME.

    NO AMNESTY

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.
