Home is here! IJC stands with DACA recipients.

Home is here.

On November 12th, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in three Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) cases. These cases argue that the termination of DACA violated the Administrative Procedures Act as well as the rights of DACA recipients. 

IJC is part of an amicus brief challenging the Trump administration’s decision to revoke DACA.

IJC has graduated 150 Fellows with 82 currently in the program, a cohort that includes Dreamers. In early 2017, when the administration first threatened DACA, IJC made a commitment to defend the DACA program and support our DACAmented Fellows. IJC is dedicated to ensuring the personal and financial security of our Fellows if DACA is rescinded.

With the fate of DACA now in the hands of the Supreme Court, hundreds of thousands of people could lose their homes, their livelihoods, and their families. Today we reiterate our unequivocal support to the DACAmented community.

Millions are rallying around the country to show the Supreme Court that DACA recipients and immigrant families aren’t going anywhere — because their #HomeIsHere.

Several IJC DACAmented Fellows are in Washington D.C. right now to participate in the march at the Capitol. They are taking over IJC’s Instagram starting today – be sure to follow along for live updates!
