A Federal Judge Rejects Request : This judicial resolution, expected by both parties for a month, is a partial victory for 690,000 young Latin, known as “dreamers”, under the threat of deportation

Federal Judge Andrew Hanen declined on Friday the request of a coalition of seven states, led by Texas, to end “immediately” the program of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals ( DACA ), as it considers that is not the “moment”.

“The court did not grant the preliminary request because it found that the United States had delayed the search for the remedy for years, and applying it at this time is against the interests of the company,” the magistrate explained in the ruling.

This judicial resolution, expected by both parties for a month, is a partial victory for 690,000 young Latinos, known as “dreamers”, under the threat of deportation.

In this sense, the Democratic Senator for the State of Nevada, Catherine Cortez Masto, celebrated in a statement the judge’s decision and called on Congress o act so that undocumented youth “do not suffer more pain.”

The immigrant advocacy organization FDW.us maintained a similar discourse and described the ruling as an example of “weakness” in the legal attempts of President Donald Trump’s administration to end DACA’s renewals.

The president of FWD.us, Todd Schulte, appealed to the “dreamers” to try to solve their situation as soon as possible, since he is sure that the critics of the program “will continue working to suppress it”, according to a statement from Her organization.

Hanen, who had previously ruled against the legality of the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Permanent Residents (DAPA) program, did observe indications that the DACA may go against “some constitutional rules.”

Therefore, it offered the possibility of recourse in 21 days and opened the door for the case to reach the Supreme Court if a final decision is not made in said period.

This legal loophole was celebrated by the Attorney General of Texas, Republican Ken Paxton, who said in a statement that the immigration program promoted during the mandate of President Barack Obama (2009-2017) is “illegal and the claimants suffer irreparable damage”.

“The court only refused to issue a preliminary injunction on DACA because of the timing of the lawsuit, but now we are very confident that it will soon face the same fate as the deferred action program for parents,” Paxton said.

The DACA was promulgated in 2012 by then President Barack Obama to protect from deportation and grant temporary work and residence permits to some 690,000 young people, who arrived in the country without papers when they were minors and are known as “dreamers”.

Last September, President Donald Trump announced that the DACA was due to expire on March 5 if Congress did not reach an agreement on immigration.

This did not happen because two judges, one from New York and one from California, forced the government to keep the program alive, although they established that only those immigrants who had previously benefited could renew their permit.

Similarly, the federal judge with the court in Washington John D. Bates reaffirmed his order to reactivate that immigration protection with the admission of new applications, a decision with which the magistrate rejected the government’s appeal to its initial decision of April 24.
