Roundup of Latest U.S. Immigration Updates
In today’s blog, we will be sharing recent must-know immigration events in the U.S. Let’s begin with the first one.
DACA Is Kept Temporarily Intact By The Federal Judge
The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) plan will continue temporarily as ruled by a Federal Judge in Texas on 14 October.
DACA was ruled unlawful last year by Andrew Hanen who is the serving U.S. District Judge. Though he kept the program unchanged, more information was asked to be submitted by the attorneys in this case.
During an earlier decision, the 5th U.S. Court of Appeals had sent the case back to Hanen, to review the latest order issued by the Biden management to keep the program. This order will commence on October 31.
Recent Polls Favour Republicans With Immigration
With merely 3 weeks left for the midterm elections, recent polls indicate that when it comes to immigration issues, voters are in favour of Republicans instead of Democrats.
The poll by Reuters shows that college graduates are preferring Democrats over Republicans while non-Hispanic whites without a baccalaureate and white women from suburban areas favor Republicans. About 40% of the registered voters consider Republicans better apt at tackling the Immigration issues than Democrats.
Undocumented Immigrants Volunteer For Hurricane Cleanup
Undocumented immigrants have played a vital role in the rehabilitation of disaster-hit cities across the U.S. as New Orleans and Houston relied on migrant workers to reconstruct their storm-hit colonies.
Similarly, an increasing number of undocumented immigrants are making their way to Florida to assist in the cleanup after Hurricane Ian destroyed cities laid along the coast. However, Governor Ron DeSantis has discouraged migrant workers from crossing into Florida.
24,000 Venezuelans Tol Get Legal Status From The Biden Administration
Recently, the Biden administration declared that they will grant legal status to about 24,000 Venezuelans, permitting them to enter the U.S. under a humanitarian release initiative.
However, the Venezuelans who enter the country illegally will be deported to Mexico following a Trump-era Covid rule referred to as Title – 42.
In 2022, more than 100,000 Venezuelans made the daring journey to Panama in hopes of entering the U.S. southern border.
