90 Immigration Law Professors Sign Letter Telling President He Has Authority to Help DREAMers

Rating: 2 votes, 5.00 average.

President Obama has stated in the past that only Congress can help potential DREAM Act beneficiaries (those young people who entered the country as children and are willing to serve in the military or pursue a college education). Recently, he has backtracked from that position and implemented a prosecutorial discretion policy. But while this bill will help many avoid deportation, it still doesn't give most of these young people the ability to work and study in the US or serve in our military. Does the President have other options? According to 90 immigration law professors from law schools around the country, there are other tools in the President's chest that he has not yet chosen to use. They include deferred action, parole-in-place and deferred enforced departure. Hat tip to Dan Kowalski at Bender's for posting the letter.

    "We offer no views on the policy dimensions of a decision to exercise or to not exercise this authority."

    LOL.

    No Kevin Johnson or Bill Hing on that list. Curious.
