Supreme Court to review President Obama’s appeal In DACA & DAPA executive actions case

In a highly anticipated decision, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed last Tuesday to hear the Obama Administration’s appeal of its new DAPA and expanded DACA Executive Actions Case.  

With two lower Federal courts having already ruled against allowing President Obama’s Executive Action on Immigration to move forward, the Supreme Court’s decision expected later this year in June will determine whether the expanded DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and new DAPA (Deferred Action for Parental Accountability) programs are allowed to be implemented across the nation, or instead, continue to be put on hold until a lower court trial determines its fate, which could take several years or more.

If the U.S. Supreme Court decides in the Obama Administration’s favor, under the new  DAPA program, most parents of a U.S. citizens or residents who have continued to be in the U.S. since  January 1, 2010 will be eligible for a Work Permit, Social Security card and Driver’s License among other benefits. Under the expanded DACA program, Immigrants who entered the U.S. before age 16 and who have continued to be in the U.S. since  January 1, 2010 and have graduated from a U.S. High School, obtained a certificate of completion or GED certificate or who are still in school, will also be eligible for a Work Permit, Social Security card and Driver’s License among other benefits.
