Newark, NJ-In a decision that dashes the hopes of undocumented immigrants across New Jersey, the U.S. Supreme Court blocked one of President Obama’s key immigration policies, Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents, or DAPA, putting the program on indefinite hold. That means immigrants in New Jersey who hoped to apply for the program will need to look for a different way to obtain legal status.
U.S. Supreme Court Agrees to Hear Challenge to DAPA
Newark, NJ- The U.S. Supreme Court announced Wednesday, January 20th, it would hear the legal challenge to one of the Obama Administration’s immigration policies, Deferred Action for Parental Accountability. If the high court decides in the Obama Administration’s favor, millions of undocumented immigrants across the U.S. could apply for relief from deportation, but the decision won’t come until later this year.
