On June 19, 2020, HBA-DC issued a press release applauding the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling that the Trump administration cannot carry out its plan to shut down the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which protects many young immigrants from deportation. Writing for the majority, Chief Justice Roberts called the Trump administration’s action rescinding DACA “arbitrary and capricious” and said the administration failed to put forward a valid rationale to end the program.

 

The young people impacted by DACA, known as DREAMers, are exemplary youth, who contribute to their schools, their communities, the economy and this great country. HBA-DC is proud to have a number of DREAMers in our membership.
