More than 100 protesters marched in Miami on January 17, 2018, to show their support for recipients of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and Temporary Protected Status (TPS). These two immigration programs are currently under attack by the Trump administration and have cast doubt on the future of those currently in the U.S. under DACA or TPS provisions. For many of these individuals and families, seeking assistance from a Miami immigration attorney can provide added help in ensuring the right to remain in this country legally.
Backlash Against Trump Policies
The protest in Miami is only the latest of numerous demonstrations against policies enacted by the Trump administration to eliminate protections for immigrants. The discontinuation of the DACA in September has left many undocumented individuals who came to the U.S. as children without a clear path forward to complete their education or pursue their employment goals. Those in the country under TPS face similar challenges and threats of deportation by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
The U.S. House and Senate are currently discussing options for replacing DACA protections with a longer-term solution for these undocumented immigrants. Many of the children and adults who formerly enjoyed protected status under DACA have no memory of the country to which they might be deported. Seeking out the help of a qualified and knowledgeable Miami immigration attorney can be a good interim step for these individuals while awaiting a final decision by the U.S. legislature.
