This morning the Supreme Court ruled in a split 5-4 decision in favor of reinstating the DACA program.

This decision did not arise from nowhere. Rather, this result comes from years of undocumented youth organizing for themselves, their families, and their communities.

This past November, SSIP youth leaders joined thousands of undocumented and DACAmented youth at the Supreme Court to demand that they Defend DACA. These youth then spoke to their representatives, organized locally, and fought to win today’s decision. 

While there are still developing factors surrounding this decision, we take today to celebrate!

What We Know

  • DACA survives for now.
  • The Supreme Court’s ruling determines that new applications must be accepted, although we do not yet know when applications will reopen.
  • We should celebrate the power of youth organizing!
  • We encourage DACA recipients to continue renewing.
  • The fight is not over, we have work left to do to achieve permanent solutions for our entire immigrant community and for our black brothers & sisters. 

What You Can Do For Now

Register to Vote 
Our communities will continue to be under attack while Trump remains in office. Make sure you register to vote & encourage others to do so as well. 

Renew DACA 
If you are a DACA recipient, it is crucial to continue renewing.

Donate to SSIP’s Family Solidarity Fund to help fund DACA renewals for our youth and families through the current pandemic.

Get Involved 
The next few weeks will be crucial as we continue organizing to make sure USCIS opens up a process for new applicants under DACA as soon as possible, and to ensure we continue fighting for full citizenship for all of our communities.
