This month brought a massive win for DACA recipients. A federal judge ruled that Chad Wolf had been unlawfully appointed to his role as acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security when he issued a July 2020 memo ending Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) protections.
The House Judiciary Committee is marking up legislation outlining a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers, TPS recipients, and DED holders, all of whom are at risk of deportation pending cancellation of their protections.
Washington, DC – The Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL) supports the Dream and Promise Act of 2019, introduced in the House today. The bill combines previous versions of both the Dream Act and the American Promise Act, which were designed to protect individuals living in the United States for extended periods of time and facing potential deportation.
Washington, DC (September 5, 2018) – Today, one year since the Trump Administration cancelled the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Program, the Friends Committee on National Legislation (FCNL) calls on lawmakers to reject increases in spending for harmful immigration enforcement practices.
FCNL welcomes the new initiative to bring much needed relief and a pathway to citizenship for millions of young, undocumented Americans.
Congress passed a $1.3 trillion package to fund the government through the rest of this fiscal year. Included in this package is money for the Department of Homeland Security, the agency that carries out detention, deportation, and border enforcement. While the spending bill included many harmful provisions, FCNL and advocates nationwide helped stop some of the most dangerous proposals.
On Thursday, February 16, the Senate took a series of votes on immigration - all of which failed to meet the 60-vote threshold to pass. Read below for FCNL’s response and vote recommendations.
