Representing a coalition of immigration reform and anti-deportation groups across the country, the activists took to the streets in the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s split United States v. Texas decision.
The #Not1More campaign created TheExcluded.net to put a face on the undocumented immigrants whose fates the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) program doesn’t address.
Obama created DAPA, a program that would halt the deportation of some undocumented parents, through an executive order last year. The program has been in limbo due to legal challenges from 26 states. Now, the Supreme Court is getting involved.
The Obama administration will begin accepting applications for the president’s enhanced deportation relief program next week. Undocumented immigrants are gearing up for the time-consuming, expensive process.
