REACTION. Biden will take legal action against the ruling / EFE

This Friday, the Joe Biden government appealed the ruling of the Texas court, which classified the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program as illegal and that could pause the new applications by the Dreamers.

The context: Last July, a district judge ruled that the program created in 2012 under Democrat Barack Obama violated the Administrative Procedures Act.

  • This decision put a pause on the requests of more than 50 thousand people who were waiting for a response.
  • The Biden administration’s appeal will be taken up by the Fifth Circuit, which is on the conservative side.

The data: According to information from the Migration Policy Institute, the group of people who are likely to be eligible for DACA exceeds 1.3 million, which generates a greater risk in newcomers to the country.

  • From the side of the Biden administration, the president seeks through Congress a path to citizenship of the Dreamers.
  • The instance must approve the immigration reform through the budget reconciliation process, which requires 50 votes.
