Cyrus D. Mehta - Preemption of AZ DL Policy Provides Another Basis for Supreme Court to Approve DAPA, Expanded DACA

Cyrus D. Mehta, Apr. 11, 2016 - "Arizona Dream Act Coalition ... provides another basis for the Supreme Court in Texas v. USA to uphold the expanded deferred action programs as part of President Obama’s November 20, 2014 executive actions, especially the Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA) and extended DACA. There is simply no difference between an EAD granted under DACA as an EAD granted based on an application for relief, such as adjustment of status or cancellation or removal. ... It is thus important for the Supreme Court to uphold the Administration’s authority to implement DAPA and extended DACA as part of its broad authority to exercise prosecutorial discretion, and its authority to grant EADs under INA 274A(h)(3)."
