    The unmatched news resource for immigration law professionals



























    Immigration Daily







    September 27, 2012



















    Comment: Comment: Employers Hate DACA -
    Since the announcement of DACA, many observers have been critical of it as an imperfect, stop-gap solution that helps fix some problems, but also creates a whole slew of new ones. As applications begin rolling in and applicants and their employers adjust to the new realities created by this program, the problems critics forecast appear to springing up again and again. One of these is that DACA is putting many large-scale employers in uncomfortable position, the New York Times reports. Troubled by increasing audits and crack-downs on hiring undocumented workers, agricultural employers do not fully trust the government's assurances that it will not use the information it receives from DACA applicants to look back and find malfeasance, both from those people and the employers that hired them. USCIS guidelines indicate that employers may verify the term of an employee's time with them and that information will not be shared with the enforcement authorities "unless there is evidence of egregious violations of criminal statutes or widespread abuses." Employers are troubled because those terms are neither clear nor defined in any existing body of law. In addition, many employers will consider acknowledgements like these as constituting actual knowledge that an employee lacks proper work authorization and will refuse to retain them until they receive it. You can see the full article here.

    What can or should be done to fix these imperfections? Should those changes be made on the individual side or the employer side? These are significant questions that must be handled and handled fast before faith in the promise of this program is shaken any further. Perhaps USCIS should take a more affirmative stance that will give employers more peace of mind. One example would be specifically stating only criminal violations - and not the amorphous allegation of 'widespread abuses' - will be grounds for information sharing with enforcement authorities. Perhaps something else altogether. Or perhaps we should simply acknowledge that DACA as it stands today is the best we can get under the current framework. What should be done?

    Comment: Slow Pace Of DACA -

    The Pasadena Star-News reports that DACA applications are not being filed at the rate many expected. The primary concern is the lack of an appeals process in the event applications are rejected. Additionally, there are concerns over whether the program will continue to exist if President Obama does not get re-elected. We comment on both of these below.


    The lack of appellate procedure will be the case in any instance of prosecutorial discretion; it is the nature of the beast. We see this program as a blessing for many, despite its imperfections. Those with concerns about their status should consult with attorneys - many groups are offering pro bono services and, in general, the fees charged by attorneys to work on these cases are not too high. In addition, the continuation of the program should not be a concern to those seeking Deferred Action for two reasons. First is that polling so far has shown a fairly close race, so it is distinctly possible that Mr. Obama will remain in the White House. On the other hand, while Mr. Romney claims he would end DACA if elected, there are reasons to believe he would not act on that statement. It would be an exceedingly bad public relations move given the GOP's growing problem connecting with Hispanic voters. More importantly, it is hard to believe that a President Romney would begin his term of office with such a controversial move. Naturally, he will have limited political capital, and the huge looming fights over the budget and Obamacare will consume all of it (and then some). It is unlikely that something with very little upside like ending DACA would be given much more than lip service in the initial six months of a Romney administration. Now, even presuming that Mr. Romney decides that ending DACA is an expenditure of his political capital, he might well simply direct that any new DACA applications be rejected. In this event, such direction may well wait for the nomination and Senate confirmation of a new USCIS Director, and in the interim, the bureaucracy can be expected to churn out continuing DACA approvals. However, for those who already have a DACA approval by then, we believe that not only will Mr. Romney respect their quasi-status, but he will even continue to renew their EADs in the years to come. We say this based on the track record of previous administrations and Congresses once EADs have already been granted. There is the final possibility that the courts might decide that they have some jurisdiction over the DACA process and may force some EAD continuance by themselves. In any event, furious litigation over this matter should be expected should Mr. Romney really decide that ending DACA is to be the keynote of the early stages of his administration.
