Victory for the NAACP DACA Lawsuit

Posted by Admin On April - 27 - 2018

It’s a day for celebration.

Ruling on an NAACP-filed lawsuit, a federal court in Washington, D.C. rejected the Trump Administration’s bid to terminate the DACA program.

Federal Judge John Bates said the decision by the Trump administration to rescind DACA was “virtually unexplained” and as such “unlawful.” He granted the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) 90 days to provide a legally sufficient explanation, and, if they fail to do so, DHS will be required to maintain the program.

Judge Bates’ ruling marks the first time that any court has reached a decision that may enable new enrollees to participate in DACA since it was terminated.

Our lawsuit was filed last fall against President Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, DHS Secretary Elaine Duke, and several departments within the administration. Two of the nation’s largest unions – the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) and the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) – as well as Princeton University and Microsoft Corporation joined us in this fight to defend people of color eligible for the DACA program.

This administration attempted to renege on a promise that our nation made to undocumented young immigrants. The NAACP has protected that promise and seen justice prevail.

Sign up to stay informed about the legal battles to protect our lives, our rights, and our future.

In Solidarity,
Derrick Johnson

NAACP
President & CEO
