Celebrating asylum in a country where it’s hard to come by

Why didn’t he just become a citizen? An immigration lawyer deconstructs a recent deportation

This week, the internet was riveted by the story of the deportation of Jorge Garcia of Detroit, Michigan to Mexico.  Garcia had entered the U.S. illegally as a child, lived in the U.S. for thirty years, is married to a U.S. citizen and has two United States citizen children.  He has no criminal record. 

The DACA Injunction

Last night, a U.S. District Court in California v DHS  issued a nationwide injunction stopping the Trump administration from ending DACA as it relates to renewals.  The court ordered DHS “to maintain the DACA program on a nationwide basis on the same terms and conditions as were in effect before the rescission on September 5, 2017, including allowing DACA enrollees to renew their enrollments.”  The administration has vowed to appeal and will likely seek to place this ruling on hold in the appellate court.
