Mobility: immigration alert, June 2020

On 18 June 2020, in a 5-4 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court found the administration's 2017 move to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program as unlawful. The decision means that until further federal court action—likely many months away, if at all—DACA recipients will continue to be able to receive protection from deportation under the program. They will be able to continue working on their current Employment Authorization Documents (EAD), permitted to apply for intial EADs as well as renew an EAD. Employers will continue to be able to accept work authorization granted under DACA rules.
