    U.S. Supreme Court won't rehear DAPA/DACA immigration case

    U.S. Supreme Court won't rehear DAPA/DACA immigration case

    The U.S. Supreme Court said Monday that it will not rehear a case that affects millions of undocumented immigrants.

    In June, a 4-4 tie by the high court in U.S. v. Texas left a lower court ruling blocking the expansion of deferred action for immigrants who came to the United States as children, a policy known as DACA.


    The original program, put into place by President Obama in 2012, gives eligible, undocumented immigrants temporary status from deportation -- and allows them to acquire a work permit.


    The expanded program would have made more undocumented immigrants, including parents of children who are U.S. citizens, eligible for deferred action. June's ruling does not apply to the original DACA.


    Democratic U.S. Rep. Ruben Gallego, who is up for reelection against Republican Eve Nunez in Congressional District 7 this November, tells ABC15 that the court's decision is a "great disappointment."


    "We've seen the success of the former program, and many people being to, not just get work permits, but also start businesses, buy homes, really get their life settled," Gallego said.


    It remains to be seen what happens to the undocumented immigrants -- more than 4 million were estimated to be eligible -- who sought protection under the expanded deferred action programs.

    So a bunch of illegal aliens filled out DAPA and DACA paperwork and wrote down their names, date of birth, place of birth, address, phone number, height, weight, color of hair, parents names, siblings names, etc. Then they got driver's license and got their picture taken and fingerprint, etc. And now all of that info will help locate them for deportation.

    "The case will now move forward in the lower courts and, in theory, the issue could make its way back to the Supreme Court in the future should the next president continue to the actions, but Monday’s denial ended the Obama administration’s last real shot at implementing the program under his watch."

    ===========================

    Supreme Court Ends Last Hope For Obama’s Immigration Actions

    The justices had split 4–4 on the Texas challenge earlier in the year, but the Obama administration asked the justices to rehear the case. The Supreme Court denied the request, along with hundreds of other such denials, on Monday morning.

    WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court turned down the Obama administration’s last hope at reviving the president’s 2014 immigration executive actions, leaving in place a lower court injunction that halts the programs from going into effect.

    Formally, the justices on Monday denied the Justice Department’s request that the justices rehear a Texas case challenging those actions.


    The move prevents the administration from implementing either its Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) program or expanding the Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.


    DAPA, a program that could have affected millions, would have prevented the removal of undocumented immigrant parents of children who are Americans or have permanent legal status, provided that the parent has no criminal record. That program cannot go into effect so long as the lower court’s injunction remains in effect.


    DACA, meanwhile, shields undocumented immigrants who entered the US before the age of 16 and have resided in the country since 2010 from deportation for two years, allowing them to apply for a work permit. That program can remain in effect, but the 2014 expansion, which would have made more people eligible and expanded the time length of the deferral from two years to three years, cannot go into effect under the lower court’s injunction.


    In June, the justices split 4–4 on the question of whether Obama’s executive actions creating the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) program and expanding the Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program were constitutional.


    That decision meant that a lower court’s preliminary injunction against DAPA and the expanded DACA would remain in effect, keeping the programs on hold.


    The Obama administration filed a petition at the Supreme Court for rehearing in July, asking the justices to reconsider the case. With Monday’s order, they declined to do so.


    The case will now move forward in the lower courts and, in theory, the issue could make its way back to the Supreme Court in the future should the next president continue to the actions, but Monday’s denial ended the Obama administration’s last real shot at implementing the program under his watch.


    The denial was one of hundreds of such denials of petitions announced on Monday morning, the first day of the Supreme Court’s new term.

    This past week, the justices met to consider all of the petitions that had come in for review over the summer, announcing on Sept. 29 that they would be hearing nine new cases — bringing the total for the term to 40.

    The Supreme Court's ruling on Obama's executive actions on immigration probably won't affect deportations

    In an election year when enforcement of the nation’s immigration laws has been a topic of constant controversy, advocates of strict enforcement will surely be cheered by the announcement today that the Supreme Court will not reconsider its position -- a 4-4 deadlock resulting in no decision -- on President Obama’s executive actions related to illegal immigrants.


    But if they expect to see a wave of deportations follow in its wake, they will likely be disappointed.


    The decision lets stand a lower court ruling that found President Obama’s efforts to create a quasi-legal status for certain illegal immigrants -- the parents of US citizens and green card holders as well as an expanded category of illegal immigrants brought to the US as children.


    The “deferred action” program that Obama attempted to put in place would have allowed those who qualified to identify themselves and work legally in the US without fear of immediate deportation.


    “The Supreme Court’s refusal to take this up on a rehearing it doesn’t do anything different than the original failure to reach a decision did,” said Benjamin Johnson, executive director of the American Immigration Lawyers Association.

    “The injunction still stands.”


    But while the court’s decision will certainly make the provision of work permits to those immigrants, as Obama had proposed, illegal, it does nothing to change the fact that the administration probably isn’t going to significantly ramp up its deportation program as a result.

    That’s because the administration has the well-established authority to set priorities for federal law enforcement agencies, and the existing set of policies regarding how it prioritizes deportation cases are designed to focus on dangerous or criminal aliens rather than, for example, manual laborers raising US-born children.


    That is not to say that none of those the administration sought to protect will face deportation, though.
