Trump’s Quiet Reversal on Deporting Young Undocumented Immigrants

Trump’s Quiet Reversal on Deporting Young Undocumented Immigrants

I spoke with Priscilla Alvarez about DACA students being deported for leaving United States. Although Trump has not immediately axed the DACA program as he pledged, DACA recipients are still at risk of being deported. Without advanced permission, known as advance parole, leaving the country is effectively abandoned DACA status. If DACA holders return, they are returning illegally and can be subject to deportation proceedings.

Seattle “Dreamer”, Daniel Medina, was released today after almost 7 weeks in detention. While this is a major short term victory, Vice News explains why Daniel Medina’s victory in immigration courts was not the original goal.

DACA remains in tact for now, but the grounds for deportation are broadening. Undocumented immigrants will have a harder time defending themselves when in removal proceedings. They are not entitled to a court-appointed attorney, the standard rules of evidence do not apply, and hearsay can come in.

How ‘dreamers’ are preparing in case Trump ends Obama immigration actions

How ‘dreamers’ are preparing in case Trump ends Obama immigration actions

Now that he has been sworn in, Donald Trump could direct his administration to end the DACA program anytime. There are two ways he could end the program:

The least bureaucratic and most lenient would allow people who have received work permits through the program to use them until the permits expire and not let them renew them.

 

Or he could end the program immediately. But under immigration regulations, that would likely require sending termination notices to all 752,000 people who have received work permits through DACA and giving them 15 days to reply.
