Immigration vs. Executive Power
Dreamers are the people, college students, military service members, and workers in American corporations who came to the US as the children of undocumented immigrants, will know their outcome soon.
The Supreme Court (SCOTUS) will hold hearings Nov. 12 to decide on the legality of the Trump Administration’s order on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), after lower courts forced the Trump Administration to continue issuing renewals.
The Trump Administration revoked DACA in 2017, giving Congress six months to replace the Obama-era program with legislation pairing border security and immigration protections for Dreamers.
Pro-immigration Democrats like Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) have also hardened their positions because the most significant changes to immigration law since Reagan. Durbin’s tougher stance came into view Wednesday, as he and Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) introduced the Relief Act, meant as a counterpoint to the House-passed Fairness for High-Skilled Immigrants Act of 2019, which enjoys bipartisan support. The Durbin-Leahy version would also increase the number of green cards granted per year.
The Trump Administration is believes the Supreme Court will uphold the rescission of DACA, allowing GOP conservatives in Congress to demand substantial increases in immigration enforcement and reductions to legal immigration in exchange for protections for DACA recipients.
The Department of Homeland Security is urging the high court to find that deferred action is illegal, regardless of any economic or social harm. The Trump administration’s position on DACA is that it exceeds executive authority.
Many Democrats believe deciding against Dreamers would deal a blow not only to the immigrants affected by it, but to American industry, innovation, and the economy, as well as morale, argue businesses in their amicus briefs.
