"We cannot allow this court to take away one of the few programs that protect our undocumented community members. DACA must stay and DACA should be protected by the federal courts and allowed to operate fully including for new applicants"Hyunja Norman Woori Juntos
" On Wednesday July 6th 2022 we will be boarding a bus with affected families and making the 6 hour trip to New Orleans to be present at the hearing on DACA in the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. Although we do not expect a decision to come down on Wednesday it is important that we are there to send them and the US a Message that we will not stay silent. We further understand that we may not influence the judges but our community and our country need to remember that we exist and that DACA has been a vitla program for me and 750,000 DREAMers in the US. The time for congress to pass the DREAM Act and an Immigration Reform package is now more critical than ever seeing that this case will make it to the Supreme Court and given that court’s makeup we fear they may side with Trump.
