Microsoft and Princeton lawyers were back in court, taking a humanitan stand for the Dreamers.
Washington, D.C., District Judge John Bates upheld his previous ruling that the Department of Homeland Security failed to give a rational explanation for the “arbitrary and capricious” decision to end DACA. The ruling issued Friday denies DHS’s motion to reverse the decision and gives the federal government 20 days to decide whether or not to appeal before resuming the program.
“A lasting solution for Dreamers has become an economic imperative and a humanitarian necessity,” said Microsoft President Brad Smith in a statement Friday. “We hope today’s decision will encourage the nation’s leaders to work together before the end of the year to address the uncertainty Dreamers have been living with for almost a year. Dreamers grew up in this country, attended our schools, pay taxes and contribute to our communities. They deserve bipartisan action by Congress.”
