Miller Mayer immigration attorney Steve Yale-Loehr was quoted by various media outlets on the Supreme Court’s DACA decision and about a detained asylum seeker who has COVID-19.
- NY Times: “Today’s decision allows Dreamers to breathe a temporary sigh of relief.”
- CNN: “The administration may try to terminate the DACA program with a better justification, but that will take months or years. In the meantime, Congress should enact permanent relief for Dreamers to end this drama once and for all.”
- NPR: Abolishing the DACA program is “not remotely possible before the election.”
- Associated Press: “Any new order to end the program, and the legal challenge it would provoke, would likely take months, if not longer: “No way that’s going to happen before November.”
- NBC: “In the meantime, Congress should enact permanent relief for Dreamers to end this decade-old drama once and for all.”
- San Francisco Chronicle: The Supreme Court’s latest ruling did not require the government to reopen the program to new applicants, but a lower court could order that step, Mr. Yale-Loehr said.
- The Appeal: Recipients of DACA have been able to renew their applications since September 2017, but no new applications have been accepted. The Court’s ruling does not address that, but it remanded the decision to the lower courts.
- FiveThirtyEight.com: The essential question, the Supreme Court said, is whether the Trump administration followed the rules.
- Arizona Republic: “Guard at Eloy Detention Center May Have Died of COVID-19 as Coronavirus Cases at Facility Soar.”
