Supreme Court Ruling Grants Temporary Relief or DACA Recipients

June 18, 2020

“While we are happy with today’s ruling that grants temporary immigrant relief for DACA recipients, we are well aware that the Trump administration may attempt to rescind the program at a later date,” says Timothy Jackson, AIDS Foundation Chicago (AFC) Director of Government Relations.

Today, the United States Supreme Court ruled that the Trump administration wrongly ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that granted immigration status to 700,000+ “Dreamers” who came to the United States as children. 

“Knowing this, our advocacy to protect DACA recipients must continue forward by demanding that the U.S. Senate pass the DREAM Act, a bill already passed in the U.S. House. The DREAM Act is a bipartisan bill that would grant lawful permanent resident status to undocumented immigrants who were granted Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status unless the person has engaged in conduct that would make the person ineligible for DACA. The time for action is now.”
