Get ready to do more! 

This is just a temporary reprieve.

This battle isn’t over. The decision was 5-4, and it just says Trump&Co. screwed up on the “HOW” they tried to do this, not the “WHY”, which is base on racism and xenophobia.

In his majority opinion, Justice Roberts wrote “We do not decide whether DACA or its rescission are sound policies. We address only whether the [Department of Homeland Security] complied with the procedural requirement that it provide a reasoned explanation for its action. Here the agency failed to consider the conspicuous issues of whether to retain forbearance and what if anything to do about the hardship to DACA recipients. That dual failure raises doubts about whether the agency appreciated the scope of its discretion or exercised that discretion in a reasonable manner.

The other four conservative justices hate DACA and Trump’s lawyers, if they’re not totally distracted by all the negative books coming out, could file again.


If he’s out of office, he doesn’t get to pick another conservative judge!

Action #1: Commit to ensuring that both you and every single person you know is registered to vote for November!

Q: How do I do that?

Q: So, what is a “qualified voter” anyway?

Q: I think I was registered to vote in my high school gym, but I’m not sure. How do I find out?

For Ventura County, click here or call (805) 654-2781. For the rest of CA, click here.

Q: OK, I’m registered but I’ve [moved, changed my name, changed my political party.]

Action #2: Increase your power level by filling out the Census!

You and your friends and family have no power if no one knows you’re here. Make sure everyone in your circle has filled out the Census! You do not need to be a “legal” resident, just a resident. Your answers are confidential.

From Rock the Vote:The Census is all about the distribution of power and money from the federal government to our communities. Money that goes toward things like emergency services, school lunches, hospitals, schools, fire departments, and affordable housing. And power, which is determined by the number of congresspersons, state legislatures, and other elected officials representing your interests.”

(ENGLISH) How Pedro and Miriam Learned About Notario Fraud is a graphic novel that shows some of the ways people get scammed while seeking immigration help. It also shows where people can go for real help. You can also read the fotonovela in Spanish here – and order free copies to share in your community.

One lesson from Pedro and Miriam is this: there are lawyers and people known as “accredited representatives” who can give real help with immigration. (You can find them at this Department of Justice site.)  But none of them are notarios. Please spread the word.

(ESPAÑOL) Cómo se enteraron Myriam y Pedro de las estafas de notario es una fotonovela que muestra algunas de las maneras en que la gente cae en una estafa cuando está buscando ayuda para asuntos de inmigración. También indica adónde puede recurrir la gente para obtener verdadera ayuda. Puedes leer la versión en español de la fotonovela haciendo clic aquí– y también puedes encargar copias gratuitas para compartir en tu comunidad.

Una de las lecciones que se desprende de la historia de Myriam y Pedro es que hay abogados y personas conocidas como “representantes acreditados” que pueden ofrecer verdadera ayuda en asuntos de inmigración. (Puedes encontrarlos en este sitio web del Departamento de Justicia). Pero ninguno de ellos es notario. Por favor, haz correr la voz.
