Abogado Ray Ybarra Maldonado discusses Trump’s latest move to end DACA by filing a cert to the United States Supreme Court.
On November 5, 2018, one day prior to the midterm elections, President Trump’s Department of Justice filed cert to the United States Supreme Court asking them to address the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Program. Immigration and the U.S.-Mexico border remain a hot topic for President Trump as he continues to stir the anger of his base.
“President Trump is using Dreamers as a pawn in his attempt to stop the midterm losses his party his likely to see in tomorrow’s election,” said Attorney Ray Ybarra Maldonado. “The attempt to file cert to get the cases heard next year is simply a political move to rile up his base to go out and vote against immigration.”
Where Did the DACA Program Come From?
The DACA program was implemented by the Obama administration and allows select individuals who were brought to the country prior to age 16 to apply for a work permit after passing a government background check. These individuals voluntarily came forward and provided their information to the government with an expectation of a work permit and a promise not to be deported. Trump refuses to wait for the cases to make their way through the judicial process and instead wants to jump ahead of the line. It’s ironic that the far right critiques immigrants for not waiting in lines while the Trump administration refuses to allow due process to run its course.
