US top court to examine ‘Dreamers’ programme

AFP, Washington

Angelica Villalobos came to the United States illegally as a child and lived in the shadows until she and 700,000 others like her gained protection from deportation under a programme that the Supreme Court will take up on Tuesday. The court will hear arguments on the fate of these people known as “Dreamers,” whom the administration of then president Barack Obama “gave wings,” in Villalobos’ words, in 2012 by letting them have work and study permits. President Donald Trump—who campaigned on a starkly anti-immigrant platform—moved in 2017 to end the Delayed Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme that has given Villalobos and others legal cover in the US. Trump gave Congress six months to devise a plan to replace DACA, saying he was sympathetic to the “Dreamers” but that Obama had established the program illegally. But lawmakers were unable to reach agreement, and the program expired the following year.

The phase-out of the program has been appealed to several courts across the country, ultimately reaching the Supreme Court. It is not expected to issue a ruling before next year, when the US will hold a hotly contested presidential election. If the Supreme Court fails to extend legal protection to the “Dreamers,” they are not expected to be automatically deported; most will probably slip quietly into the shadowy life of the undocumented, for whom working and studying is fraught with difficulty. In the meantime “this is has been like a roller coaster,” said Villalobos, a 34 Mexican and mother of five who works in an auto repair shop in Oklahoma.
