Attacks on DACA
- Miano’s colleague at IRLI, Kris Kobach helped initiate and draft anti-immigrant lawsuits like Crane v. Napolitano, the suit that pitted ICE against President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and set the stage for United States v. Texas.
- U.S. v. Texas: IRLI and FAIR filed a joint amicus brief in support of Texas at the U.S. Supreme Court on August 4, 2016.
- Brewer v. ADAC: IRLI has filed several briefs in support of Arizona in Brewer v. ADAC, currently a pending petition at the U.S. Supreme Court, which has invited the Acting Solicitor General to weigh in on behalf of the United States. Previous litigation in this case centered around the state’s right to issue driver’s licenses with a narrowly defined question regarding the President’s authority to administer immigration policy. Now the petition to the U.S. Supreme Court focuses on the constitutionality of DACA.
