Exterior Supreme Ct immigration arguments, voices for families

As the Supreme Ct on Monday weighed the legality of two executive orders on immigration, Sayra Hernandez, a 16-year-old from Mexico, stood exterior the courthouse with her sister and mother. The family has a deportation date scheduled for April 29.

“For me and my family, it means a lot,” Hernandez, who lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan, said Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents, or DAPA. DAPA provides three-year work permits and safety from deportation to the parents of children who are U. S. citizens or lawful permanent residents.

(The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, DACA, program applies to children brought to the U. S. illegally and isn't affected by this case except for the administration’s proposal to prolong the work permit for so-called Dreamers to three years from two.)

Those Obama administration executive orders have been on ice for more than a year due to valid troubles, as TX and twenty-five other states filed lawsuits against them.

For the hundreds of activists and protesters who joined Hernandez and her family Monday exterior the courthouse – the majority of whom were against the TX lawsuit – the served as an opportunity to have their voices heard. “Si, se puede,” which translates roughly to “Yes, we can,” was a consistent chant heard throughout the crowds.

“I’m here because I don’t wish to be scared anymore that when I go residence my mom isn’t going to be there,” said Kerry Gutierrez, a 17-year-old from Boulder, Colorado, whose mother is in the U. S. illegally. “I don’t wish to be the head of household; I’m too youthful for that.”

“I know what it’s love to live in fear of being deported, of being separated from my family,” said Julissa Arce, who came to the United States illegally when she was eleven. Presently Arce, a former protégé at Goldman Sachs, sits on the board of the National Immigration Law Center, an organization that provides valid aid to low-income immigrants.

“At the finish of the day my legend is one about perseverance and determination, and that's the American story, and that’s what we wish for the millions of people affected by this issue,” Arce added.

For others, however, the authorization of DAPA and the DACA extensions would set a risky precedent for the powers of the commander in chief.

“At its core, it’s not about whether you are anti- or pro-immigration, it’s about whether the Supreme Ct will authorize the executive branch,” to skirt the regulation of law, U. S. Rep. Ted Yoho, a Republican from Florida, said in a statement after the argument.

“It’s ironic that people would arrive into this country illegally, and the reason they’re coming illegally is because this country provides more opportunity than the places they came from,” said U. S. Rep. Louie Gohmert, a Republican from Texas. “And yet, once here, they wish us to be love the country they came from, where we don’t enforce the law across the board.”

There are more than eleven million immigrants in the U. S. who are here illegally, with 3.6 million of them possibly eligible for DAPA benefits, according to a two thousand sixteen report from the Migration Policy Institute, a Washington-based nonpartisan research center.

“If you really dig deep down into this case and attempt to realize this, this isn't (about) amnesty or some kind of blanket forgiveness,” said Wendy Feliz, communications director for the American Immigration Council, an organization that advocates for immigration policy and education. “This is temporary protected status for people.”
