HR Policy, Member Companies File Second Amicus Brief in Federal Court Seeking to Maintain DACA

April 13, 2018

For the second time in three weeks, HR Policy joined a number of member companies in urging a federal court—this time the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit—to affirm a nationally-applicable preliminary injunction on the Trump administration's halting of the DACA program.  In addition to reasoning that the administration's action violated the Administrative Procedure Act, the brief also explores the economic reasons for maintaining DACA similar to those given in HR Policy's recent white paper on immigration.  "In the over five years since DACA was implemented," the brief states, "Dreamers have become essential contributors to American companies and the American economy."  HR Policy previously joined on a similar amicus brief to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, which is expected to hear its DACA case this May.
