Supreme Court Rejects Trump Administration Attempt to Dismantle DACA
This morning, the United States Supreme Court rejected the Trump Administration’s attempt to end legal protections for hundreds of thousands of Dreamers, keeping President Obama’s DACA program in place. Cotchett, Pitre & McCarthy represents the City of San Jose in the case on a pro bono basis.
“This is a wonderful day not just for the Dreamers, but for our Country. DACA recipients add strong and vibrant fiber to the fabric of our communities,” said one of CPM’s attorneys, Justin T. Berger. “This decision offers a ray of hope in troubled times.”
As San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo has previously stated: “DACA recipients compose some of our community’s best and brightest young people. According to the Center for American Progress, approximately 96% of DREAMers are either enrolled in school or working. They’re high-achieving students, they’re innovative tech entrepreneurs, and they’re teachers and nurses serving our community.”
“Finally, justice brings an end to the fear and uncertainty burdening these bright young Americans,” said CPM partner Joe Cotchett.
