Today, a divided U.S. Supreme Court could not agree whether President Obama had the legal authority to give relief to millions of immigrants without papers. As a result, executive action on immigration remains blocked.
The executive programs, known as "DAPA" and "DACA plus," apply to some undocumented immigrants who came to the US as children, or whose children were US citizens or permanent residents.
DAPA and DACA would give working papers, the ability to remain in the country, and the possibility of travel to those who qualified.
The Supreme Court decision is an injustice, and a step backward for many of our African community members. But it's just the beginning of the fight for a more fair immigration system.
On Wednesday, June 29, at 5:30PM African Communities Together will be hosting a national conference call for the African community on what this decision means and next steps. French translation will be provided as usual.
