Good and Bad News for DACA and DAPA

Posted by:

Advocates received some rare good news last month when the Supreme Court agreed to rule on the constitutionality of President Obama’s program to issue work permits to nearly 5 million undocumented immigrants.

However, it is much too early to celebrate. Even the ...

Keeping our Fingers Crossed for 2016

Posted by:

This past year has been a year of great uncertainty for the immigrant community on Long Island, and across the nation.

President Obama’s much-heralded Executive Actions — which would have resulted in work authorization for nearly 5 million undocumented immigrants — is virtually dead. While a legal challenges has blocked implementation of the programs, there is a possibility that the Supreme Court could take the case and reach a decision by June.

But growing anti-immigrant sentiment, sparked by radical Islam terrorism and ...
