On October 5, 2022, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals issued its decision on DACA, largely upholding a lower court ruling finding the 2012 memo that established DACA unlawful.

This ruling does not change who can currently apply for or renew DACA for now. That being said, it is another stark and serious reminder of the urgency for Congress to act swiftly to deliver a permanent legislative solution.

Immigrant youth need the permanency and stability of a pathway to citizenship. The public widely supports this solution, and it’s past time for Congress to follow through. There is only one path forward now and it depends on Congressional courage and President Biden’s leadership.

Join us in calling on Congress to swiftly pass a pathway to citizenship for immigrant youth in the aftermath of this court ruling >>>
