A Mexican-Born DREAMer Is Taking Legal Action To Halt Trump’s Reversal Of DACA

Make the Road New York is representing Martín Batalla Vidal, a Mexican-born man who came to the United States when he was seven years old and received work authorization under DACA. Lawyers for the plaintiff said they planned to raise two claims against the administration’s decision to end DACA. First, that officials failed to offer a “reasoned explanation” for the move, in violation of the federal Administrative Procedure Act, and, second, that the decision was unconstitutionally “motivated by anti-Mexican and anti-Latino animus.” Other groups representing Vidal’s case are the National Immigration Law Center and the Worker & Immigrant Rights Advocacy Clinic WIRAC at the Yale Law School.
