DACA UPDATE: DC district court partially stayed a previous order to fully reinstate #DACA. This means that USCIS will not accept first time applications or advance parole for now. DACA renewals are still being accepted. 📣 1/
Three federal courts that have now said that the Trump administration’s termination of DACA was wrong. 2/ #ProtectDreamers
This development in the DC case eliminates Texas’ explanation for why they need an immediate halt to #DACA renewals. Simply put: they have no real argument. 3/

6 years ago, the government began accepting the first applications for the #DACA program, changing the lives of 800,000 young immigrants who could now receive temporary protection from deportation, study, and legally work in the only country they have ever known. #ProtectDreamers
I was there when #Dreamers came to Navy Pier by the thousands to apply for #DACA. They just wanted the chance be a part of America’s future. nytimes.com/2012/08/16/us/…
Gloria was the 110th #Dreamer whose story I shared on the Senate floor. She’s a medical assistant and studying to be a clinical psychologist. Her story: facebook.com/SenatorDurbin/…

Federal Judge orders full restart of DACA program - The restart won’t be immediate. U.S. District Judge John Bates said the order would be delayed until Aug. 23 to allow the government to appeal. apple.news/ADbtC1iiDTMOLC…
In a 25-page opinion Friday, Bates, an appointee of former President George W. Bush, rejected the administration’s argument that the original decision to end DACA remained sound. #DACA
If Friday’s ruling goes into effect later this month, the administration will be required to accept new applications from people who meet DACA’s eligibility requirements.

You can’t make this s**t up @SenWarren @SenatorCarper @SenWhitehouse @SenBlumenthal are demanding an investigation from the Department of Defense IG into who’s toured Air Force One. These people are insane, what a horrific waste of resources. #VOTEDEMSOUT

A short important thread on DACA: 1- Those who have DACA, go ahead & put in your renewal application even if your status doesn’t expire in 150 days. USCIS will accept the renewal application for NOW. 2. As of Aug. 8 there could be a 🛑 stop on all renewals from a fed judge in TX.

@realDonaldTrump DEC 8, 2010: House votes 216-198 to pass the DREAM Act. All but 8 Republicans vote no, incl Ryan, McCarthy, Scalise

DEC 18, 2010: DREAM Act is filibustered in the Senate, 55y-41n. YESes are 52 Ds + 3 Rs. NOs are 5 Ds + 36 Rs incl McConnell, Cornyn, Thune
@realDonaldTrump @RepSwalwell : The @HouseGOP defeated our 22nd attempt (since @realDonaldTrump announced #DACA’s termination) to bring the bipartisan #DREAMAct to the floor for a vote. Remember this when they claim they'll help #Dreamers, as more than 3/4 of Americans want.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) allowed some individuals who were brought to the US illegally as children to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and become eligible for a work permit in the U.S. #DemHistory #WhyIVoteDemocrat
The DACA policy was announced by President Barack Obama on June 15, 2012, and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) began accepting applications for the program on August 15, 2012. #DemHistory #WhyIVoteDemocrat #DACA
Studies have shown that #DACA increased the mental health outcomes for DACA-eligible immigrants and their children.There are no known major adverse impacts from DACA on native-born workers' employment, and most economists say that DACA benefits the U.S. economy #DemHistory

Last week, USCIS issued two new memos that are going to affect *all* immigration applications. That includes green cards, fiancé visas, H-1B's, citizenship, work permits, extensions and changes of status - the whole nine yards.
The first memo says that if an application is denied, and that denial leaves the applicant without lawful immigration status, the applicant will be placed in removal proceedings (deportation.)

uscis.gov/news/news-rele…
The second memo says that if an application is filed incompletely, without certain required evidence, then USCIS has the right to deny the application *without* requesting further evidence (commonly known as an "RFE.")

We're here in Montgomery, Alabama rallying to say that #FamiliesBelongTogther & to call to #EndFamilyDetention
At the bus stop where Rosa Parks sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott, Alabamians protest an injustice of our time - the Trump administration's zero tolerance policy separating families all across America. #EndFamilyDetention #FamiliesBelongTogether
Separating families is wrong and today in Alabama, #TheMarchContinues for immigration reform. #EndFamilyDetention

Marches don't do shit to solve the problems we face as a nation. Due to gerrymandering, Citizens United, NRA and cheating (Scotus, stolen election) we have no opportunity to hold our representatives accountable $ is their only constituent. #FamiliesBelongTogetherMarch
#Resisters stop hoping that either #Mueller or #midterm2018 will right the wrongs of this regime. Realize we must be prepared to simultaneously attack and employ different tactics to win. We have to think out-of-the-box and #justdoit as 1st #womensmarch #msdstrong @MomsDemand
It's time to take a cue from our global trading partners and those who boycotted NC due to HB2 (Bathroom Bill). I propose a nation-wide boycott of GOP states and/or districts until families reunited, #puertorico #flint #BLM #DACA, #ACA #SCOTUS globalnews.ca/news/4304951/c…

This language about curing "taint" from Abbott v. Perez seems tailor-made for a citation in travel ban opinion. "Presumption of legislative good faith" seems very similar to "presumption of regularity." J. Alito mentioned this point deliberately during his hand-down. #SCOTUS.
Similar sentiment from @dorfonlaw
"Meanwhile, I fear further inconsistency with respect to taint, perhaps as early as tomorrow or Wednesday, in the Court's anticipated ruling in the Travel Ban Case." #SCOTUS dorfonlaw.org/2018/06/at-sco…
Relatedly, Perez offers another way another way to rebut allegations of "taint" and animus: demonstrate that decision was motivated by desire to end "expensive and time consuming" litigation. This language will be cited in future litigation over #DACA rescission. #SCOTUS

My thoughts today on the happenings over the past year and a half of political violence and oppression. You might either agree or disagree, but I will grant anyone a voice to share their point of view and welcome discussion:

To those who think they're liberal or progressive while only tolerating your opinions, it is becoming apparent that you know you're on the way out as Schlesinger's cyclical theory of politics pendulum swings back towards center.
(3) #QANON #MAGA #GREATAWAKENING #WWG1WGA
The calls for violence against "Trump supporters" has reached a deafening & very annoying level. The 'die ins' at stores supporting the NRA as well as other boycotts have become the pacifiers to the whining babies on the left.

1/ First argument in the memo--"AG concluded it's illegal because CTA5 said so," notwithstanding extensive DOJ opinions and briefs for the U.S. to the contrary--remains absurd, and arbitrary/capricious, as @adambcox, @cmrodriguez95 and I explained and as several courts have held.
2/ See balkin.blogspot.com/2017/10/a-prim….
The five grafs beginning in middle of p.2, however, ought to resolve most or all of the current #DACA litigation. Inexplicable why it took them 10 months, and countless court challenges, to write it.
3/ Now up to Congress to correct this cruel, deeply counterproductive Trump/Nielsen policy.

It’s a relief that @realDonaldTrump has reversed himself & recognized the cruelty of his policy of separating families. While the EO doesn’t reference the families already ripped apart, I hope & expect that the admin will be able to quickly reunite these children w/their parents.
I also hope this represents a turning point & @POTUS will stop blaming others for problems he creates & start fixing them himself.
He can start with correcting the problems that this executive order will create, and should also undo his #DACA order, which has put so many young people in limbo.

Thread: How did we get here?
In 2015, I shook President Obama’s hand, thanked him for DACA, and asked him to reverse course & close the for-profit baby jails (also known as “family detention centers”) he opened in Dilley & Karnes City, Texas. What he said shook me to my core 1/
2/ Specifically, I told him, “It’s wrong. And it’s going to be a stain on your legacy.” He stopped moving on to the next person in the rope line and looked back at me. I’d gotten his attention. He turned back, looked at me and “Are you an immigration lawyer?” “Yes”
3/ Just days before, President Obama’s senior immigration policy advisor @cecmunoz had received a chilly welcome during her keynote address to the @AILANational annual conference attendees in National Harbor. She was greeted with silent protest & signs saying #EndFamilyDetention

On this day 6 years ago President Obama established #DACA. This program gave young immigrants the chance to come out of the shadows and be part of the only country they’ve ever called home.
In September of last year, President Trump made the cruel decision to end #DACA. Now, 800,000 Dreamers face deportation to countries they have never known.
I’ve been urging Republican leaders in Congress to do the right thing by these kids and pass the bipartisan #DreamAct. It’s the only way to protect these talented students, teachers, nurses, and a whole host of others who love this country as much as anyone.

I'm on a plane, so might as well do this. Feeling helpless about the family separations at the border? Guess what, there are many people & organizations who need your help & electeds who need to do more. Things you can do to help parents & kids at the border thread below. 1/
Let's start w/ Texas: One organization that could use your help is @netargv - who are they? Well, they are some of the best story-tellers of the border region, however, they are also kind souls taking donations for families sleeping outside of ports of entry in extreme heat 2/
Here's @netargv's fundraiser to help volunteers who go to Mexico to assist these families outside. My friend @lorellapraeli went down there last week & met a family who had been outside for 17 days. They need Diapers, Underwear, Bras, Baby wipes, etc.
