Uncertainty for dreamers

On July 6 and 7, two courts, in New Orleans and New York, respectively, heard arguments against the plan in favor of hundreds of thousands of young people known as “dreamers” or “dreamers.”

They all arrived in the United States as minors, and as adults, through the initiative, have guarantees of access to work, education, basic services and a reduced risk of deportation.

To attack the program, Texas lawyers filed an investigation with the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals that said the state spends about $250 million annually to maintain it, El Tiempo Latino reported.

However, Attorney Brian M Boynton, of the Department of Justice, asserted in the same court that it was a “purely speculative” standard.

The hearing was preceded by Federal Judge Andrew Hanin’s decision, who issued a ruling on July 16, 2021 in favor of a group of Republican states, led by Texas, requesting an end to DACA on the grounds that Barack Obama’s government (2009-2017) broke the law in its implementation.

On July 7, in the famous Vidal vs. Mayorkas battle in favor of the plan, judges were asked to approve about 78,000 applications for new recipients, considering that the program only includes those who arrived in the nation before 2007.

Currently, both courts have only dealt with listening to the evidence, without offering real solutions to the needs of young immigrants looking to a better future in that country.

US President Joe Biden has promised immigration reform that would grant citizenship to the 11 million illegal immigrants residing on US soil and DACA beneficiaries, but so far the initiative has not been discussed in Congress.
