NY Attorney General fights to protect DACA programme for Caribbean immigrants

New York Attorney General, Letitia James, has co-led a coalition of 22 attorneys general in pushing back against the ongoing effort by Texas to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals programme for Caribbean and other immigrants.

The coalition asserts the critical importance of DACA for states across the country and the hundreds of thousands of dreamers and their families who depend on the programme.

In the amicus brief, James and her colleagues assert that DACA recipients are vital to their communities, public universities, and economies and that DACA enhances public safety and reduces the strain on social safety net programmes.

The action is part of James' ongoing effort to protect DACA, including her defense of the programme in the US Supreme Court.
