California Fights for DACA
California Attorney General Xavier Becerra has filed an amicus brief in opposition to the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) termination of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA).
Attorney General Becerra argues that because more than 70 percent of DACA recipients have a spouse, child, parent, or sibling that is a U.S. citizen, revoking the DACA status results in recipients losing their right to work legally and provide for their families.
DACA recipients also have a financial impact on the states, an estimated $1.2 billion in state and local taxes.
Finally, Becerra argues that stripping the DACA program undermines the public’s trust in government.
The brief is joined by the Attorney Generals of Connecticut, Delaware, Hawai’i, Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, and the District of Columbia.
The brief can be viewed below.
