Immigrants may renew DACA until October despite campaign in Texas

 The so-called “dreamers” will have until October to renew their registrations to the Deferred Action program (DACA), despite the new campaign by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who asked a federal judge to annul the protections, said Efe today. a jurist.

The lawyer and “dreamer” Luis Cortés stated that “the Ninth Circuit of Appeals national order is valid, although the Texas judge determines that DACA is illegal.”

Cortés, who practices in Seattle thanks to a permit granted by DACA, pointed out that if Paxton manages to get the judge to rule against the benefit it would be “a great step for the administration of President Trump, although they have lost in the other courts where the future of the DACA is being determined. “

Paxton resumed yesterday his fight to repeal DACA when he submitted a motion for District Judge Andrew Hanen of the last step, after determining last August that the amparo signed in 2012 by then President Barack Obama is probably illegal.

However, Hanen declined to issue a decision to block program renewals.

Cortés, who is part of the legal team that represents six “dreamers” who sued the Trump administration and got a California judge to revive the injunction, indicated that “it is entirely possible that Judge Hanen now issues the order to block DACA, since in its previous failure it inclined to say that it was illegal “.

“A Texas judge’s order that the DACA program is illegal would give him the tool that President Trump needs to convince the Court to hear the case, but we’ll have to wait,” Cortés said.

Last January, the White House urged the Supreme Court to hear the DACA case, but the court chose not to do so in this period, leaving the issue open until October, when it could be included in the agenda.

Activists and groups of dreamers have concentrated on promoting the renewal of the benefit, even those that expire next year.

Nearly 700,000 “dreamers” had a respite since early 2017 when a California judge ordered the program to continue and the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) continue to accept renewals. (EFEUSA) .-
