ADC Breaking News: DREAMers will be allowed to Work in the U.S. Legally
President Trump Will Allow DREAMers to Work in the U.S. Legally
According to the Department of Homeland Security, “No work permits will be terminated prior to their current expiration dates.”
DREAMers are those individuals who arrived to the U.S. as minors. They were given semi-legal status during the Obama Administration under a program called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Homeland Security Sec. John Kelly stated they will not deport those who received this status under the policy President Obama put in place in 2012.
The new guidance has recently become available as the President faced a court deadline stemming from the 2014 efforts by then President Obama to expand DACA to include undocumented parents of U.S. citizens and green card holders via program called Deferred Action for Parents of Americans, or DAPA. The Supreme Court took up this issue and deadlocked on a decision, 4-4, which left the injunction in place.
Since the Trump Administration took office earlier this year, DACA permits have continued to renew as they did before his presidency.
