HR Policy Urges Supreme Court to Maintain DACA

October 04, 2019

HR Policy joined several member companies in filing an amicus curiae brief urging the U.S. Supreme Court to affirm the three federal court judgments finding the Trump administration’s rescission of DACA to have been unlawful.

“Eliminating DACA will inflict serious harm on U.S. companies, all workers, and the American economy as a whole,” the brief reads.

A press release by the Coalition for the American Dream, of which HR Policy is a part, notes, "The brief, which includes a number of U.S. companies that employ workers protected under the DACA program, illustrates the immense support from the U.S. business community for Congress to provide permanent protections for DACA recipients, for the benefit of employers and the economy more broadly."  

Looking ahead: Arguments are set to begin November 12, with a decision likely sometime next year.
