VERONA, Virginia, April 18, 2016 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Today, the Supreme Court of the United States began hearing arguments in the United States v. Texas suit that attempts to roll back President Obama’s 2014 executive orders on immigration, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA). The DAPA and DACA programs directed law enforcement agencies to focus on threats to national security and allow law-abiding immigrants who are the parents of children who are legal U.S. residents to temporarily stay and work in the United States if they pass a background check, pay taxes, and have lived in the country for at least five years.
Mike Donovan, CEO of Nexus Services Inc., a leading family of companies serving immigrant communities across the United States, said:
Nexus Services is proud to stand with the strong coalition of millions of immigrant families and advocacy groups from across the country in urging the Supreme Court to uphold the President’s executive orders on immigration. The DAPA and DACA programs are responsible, legal, and necessary given Congress’s failure to pass comprehensive immigration reform.
These programs protect millions of law-abiding parents in our country from deportation if they pass a background check and pay taxes. Rather than living in the shadows, we should encourage immigrants to work hard, pay taxes, and cooperate with law enforcement officials if they are victims of crimes—and that is exactly what DAPA and DACA are designed to do.
We hope that the Court sees through the plaintiffs’ political rhetoric and understands that the President’s executive orders were an appropriate and responsible way to respond to a national crisis in the face of congressional inaction.
