Supreme Court Issues Disappointing Split Decision in United States v. Texas

Today, the Supreme Court issued a 4-4 decision in United States v. Texas, the case challenging expanded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA).  This means that the Fifth Circuit’s decision upholding the preliminary injunction against these initiatives will stand. This ruling does not impact the original DACA program launched in 2012. The decision is a huge disappointment for immigrant families and their defenders. It’s bad for American communities, workers and the economy. We will continue to explore all available legal avenues and will urge the government to do the same. Ultimately, the nation needs a permanent solution to our outdated immigration system, and that must come from Congress.  The fight will continue.

El Tribunal Supremo Emite una Decisión Decepcionante en Estados Unidos v. Texas

Hoy en día, el Tribunal Supremo emitió una decisión 4-4 en los Estados Unidos v. Texas, el caso que cuestiona la Acción Diferida para los Llegados en Infancia amplificada (DACA) y la Acción Diferida para los padres de los estadounidenses y residentes legales permanentes (DAPA). Esto significa que la decisión del Quinto Circuito de mantener su medida preliminar en contra de estas iniciativas se mantendrá. Este fallo no influye en el programa original de DACA puesto en marcha en 2012. La decisión es una gran decepción para las familias inmigrantes y sus defensores. Es malo para las comunidades estadounidenses, los trabajadores y la economía. Vamos a continuar explorando todas las vías legales disponibles y le vamos a insistir al gobierno a hacer lo mismo. Ultimadamente, la nación necesita una solución permanente a nuestro sistema de inmigración antiquado, y debe de venir del Congreso. La lucha va a continuar.
