DACA: Road to Citizenship

President Trump Tuesday said he would sign an executive order to take care of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients and emphasize merit-based education. President Trump said last Friday he would sign an executive order which would include a “road to citizenship” for DACA recipients. President Trump told Telemundo anchor Jose Diaz-Balart he had pledged to end DACA since he was on the campaign trail in 2015 when he called the program an “illegal executive order,” but that this bill wouldn’t just be for temporary relief but would be a far more encompassing merit-based bill. One of the aspects of the executive order is going to be DACA. We are going to have a road to citizenship.

President Trump’s announcement comes a few weeks after the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 to reject President Trump’s attempt to dismantle the program for young immigrants. The Supreme Court ruled the Trump administration had not provided proper legal justification to end the program established under President Obama in 2012. The Supreme Court then began oral arguments for the case in November 2019, which prompted President Trump to tweet, “Many of the people in DACA, no longer very young, are far from angels. ‘Some are very tough, hardened criminals.”

I wanted to take this opportunity to let everyone know that The Law Office of Danna Young is still fully functioning during the COVID-19 pandemic. We have, however, transitioned to doing all business remotely. Business hours will remain the same, specifically 9-5, and my receptionist is answering phones during that time. All cases that are in progress are continuing, and we are taking new clients as well. The only difference is that we are handling most, if not all meetings remotely. We are also exchanging documents via email or fax as much as possible.

I know that this is a stressful time, and I hope that we are able to return to normal operations as soon as possible. In the interim, we are here to serve you. I will also be more active on this page and provide updates regarding various agencies pertaining to immigration issues so as to help you stay informed.

If we can assist you, please call us at 501-414-0264.
