The National Network for Immigrant and Refugee Rights celebrates the Supreme Court's ruling against the Trump Administration's challenge to DACA. This is a victory for the hundreds of thousands of DACA recipients and their families, this is a victory for all of us!
NNIRR recognizes the courageous and principled contributions of DACA leaders to the movement for immigrant rights, and we stand in solidarity as we demand full and permanent protections for DACA recipients, their families and all others with vulnerable immigration status.
We know the fight for justice does not end with this decision. Trump and USCIS should immediately restore the DACA program, process renewals, and new DACA applications. We continue to urge Congress to pass permanent protections and solutions that lead to full rights and permanent immigration status for DACA, TPS recipients, and others under threat of deportation.
Our elation by this victory is tempered by the public health and policing crises that have been particularly devastating for communities of color. During this public health crisis, Congress must include ALL immigrants in stimulus packages moving through Congress to address COVID-19 impacts on communities. Free COVID-19 testing, treatment and services should be provided for all people, regardless of immigration status.
With national attention turned to the racist and xenophobic underpinnings of law enforcement, we also urge that ICE & CBP be defunded and that any immigration law enforcement be aligned with the systemic and just transformation of all policing programs.
Today we take a moment to celebrate and reflect on this victory. We will continue to act in solidarity, and to organize for human-rights based immigration reforms and racial justice.
The next important step is to Defeat Trump and his regime.
Take a moment to appreciate the hard fought victories of activists, but let’s redouble our efforts to pass legislation that can protect Dreamers once and for all. Sign your name to help us build grassroots support for a new DREAM Act.
