Amicus Brief Challenging Administration’s Rescission of DACA

NCIL joined a coalition of 45 civil rights and social justice organizations, led by the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, in filing an amicus brief before the Supreme Court urging that the Department of Homeland Security’s rescission of the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program is unlawful. The brief was submitted Friday morning.

In late 2017, the Trump Administration abruptly terminated the DACA program. Legal challenges have kept the program in place, and it has now made its way to the Supreme Court, where a hearing is expected on November 12, 2019.
