Immigrants: Future uncertain for DACA immigrants brought illegally to the US as March 5 deadline lapses

The future remains uncertain for more than half a million immigrants called “Dreamers” (DACA) as US lawmakers missed the March 5 deadline to resolve their fate.

The nearly 700,000 immigrants who are brought to the United States illegally as children and shielded from deportation under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme have to keep hoping the issue will be resolved months after President Donald Trump announced he was ending it.

A US District Court judge issued a nationwide injunction that requires the government to allow recipients to renew their permits to live and work in the country, and the US Supreme Court declined to accept the administration’s request to intervene.

Both those developments have taken the pressure off lawmakers. As the US Election day comes up in November with Congress unlikely to take any action before then when the case finally gets there, there is no guarantee that the courts would rule in favor of the issue before summer.

Lawmakers had opportunity to legislate a fix, but the fate of Dreamers has proved too divisive for Congress to resolve.

Last month, Democrats essentially forced a brief government shutdown over the issue, demanding that the Senate’s Republican leaders debate immigration.

They agreed, but despite one week of floor debate last month, the Senate failed to pass any related to Dreamer. The House Speaker Paul Ryan has also not brought a legislative solution to the floor for a vote.

A Trump-backed plan that that didn’t get senate pass would have provided a pathway to citizenship for 1.8mn Dreamers – the 700,000 DACA registrants, plus 1.1mn who did not register in exchange for extra border security funding and dramatic curtailment of legal immigration.

Many Democrats and immigration advocates have warned that despite the court injunction, DACA recipients face uncertainty thanks to Trump’s making.

“Without a permanent solution, Trump’s cruel and reckless decision will tear more families apart and shatter communities. It will also drive immigrants into the shadows, and make us all less safe, said the DNC chair Tom Perez.

Congressional Hispanic Caucus chairwoman Michelle Lujan Grisham urged “all our colleagues to support bipartisan bills that protect Dreamers. The bill which is named “fair and permanent bills” already have the votes to pass the House and the Senate.

The American Civil Liberties Union has partnered with immigration rights groups to launch a campaign on various media outlets. The campaign will demand Trump support viable legislation that protects Dreamers. The group recently launched an AD that reads “Fix what you broke before it’s too late”.
