Senators Discuss Bill to Address Border Security and DREAMers

In a new proposed bipartisan bill, several U.S. senators are looking to find a compromise solution to issues related to border security, as well as help for DREAMers (immigrants who were born outside of this country, but came to the U.S. at a young age.)   The bill, if passed, would introduce a number of dramatic changes aimed at reducing the number of immigrants in detention facilities, as well as introduce a potential path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children. However, the bill faces an uphill battle to obtain passage, with some members of the House and Senate already announcing their opposition.

Federal Court Strike Title 42 Rule

In a ruling passed down on November 15, a district court judge struck down Title 42, a pandemic-era policy intended to make it harder for many immigrants to seek asylum in the United States. According to the ruling, the policy was not passed in accordance with the Administrative Procedures Act, making it illegal under federal law. This means that asylum seekers will have an easier time pursuing legal protections when they cross the border into the U.S.

Court Approves Settlement in MAVNI Lawsuit

A federal court has approved a settlement between beneficiaries of the Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest (MAVNI) program and the United States government, allowing more participants in that program to obtain military naturalization. The settlement, once implemented, will allow foreign citizens who served in the U.S. Army with “uncharacterized” discharges, as well as those currently serving in the Army, to pursue U.S. citizenship. For many who served in the military, this is a welcome development that could help them on the road to naturalization.

SCOTUS Certifies “Remain in Mexico” Policy Can End

The Supreme Court of the United States has certified, in a 5-4 ruling, that the “Remain in Mexico” policy put into place during the previous presidential administration can end. The policy, which forced asylum seekers to wait in Mexico while awaiting hearings in immigration court, was kept in place after a lawsuit was filed by the State of Texas to keep the Biden Administration from ending it. With this ruling, the policy can finally end, allowing asylum seekers to cross the border once more to seek refuge in the United States.

Supreme Court Rules Against Reinstating Immigration Detention Policy

The Supreme Court has refused to reinstate an immigration detention policy by the Biden Administration that would direct Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers to prioritize immigrants who threaten national security or public safety. The ruling comes after a decision by a Texas district court judge, who ruled that the policy violated federal law. The Department of Justice (DOJ) requested the policy be allowed to remain in place while the decision was being appealed, but the Supreme Court rejected their request.

Federal Appeals Court to Hear Case on DACA Legality

A federal appeals court is set to hear an appeal from a Texas district court case that would, if upheld, invalidate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The case has many concerned about the fate of DREAMers, who might lose their legal status if the ruling is upheld.
