Princeton, Microsoft File Suit against Ending DACA

Cites Allegations Similar to NAACP, AFT and UFCW’s Case against Trump

BALTIMORE (November 3, 2017)—Today, the Trustees of Princeton University, the Microsoft Corporation, and Plaintiff Maria De La Cruz Perales Sanchez, a Princeton undergraduate and DACA participant, have filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, opposing the rescission of DACA.

Similar to the suit filed by the NAACP and joined by the American Federation of Teachers and the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW[b1] ); this new lawsuit names President Donald Trump, Secretary Elaine Duke, and the Department of Homeland Security as defendants. The new lawsuit contains allegations similar to the NAACP suit, charging that the rescission of DACA violates both federal statutory laws and the U.S. Constitution.

“We welcome Princeton, Microsoft and Ms. Sanchez in standing against President Trump’s misguided attempt to end the American Dream for so many young people who have successfully integrated themselves into American society,” said Derrick Johnson, NAACP President and CEO. “It’s a powerful statement when one of our most prestigious institutions of learning and one of our most influential corporations join forces to protect those who simply want to learn, work and lead productive lives in this country.” 

The NAACP filed suit two months ago against President Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Homeland Secretary Elaine Duke, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the Department of Homeland Security.  The NAACP suit argues that by ending DACA, the Trump administration unlawfully reneges on government promises embedded in DACA to protect young, undocumented immigrants. The NAACP alleges violations of the Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, the Administrative Procedure Act and the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

The NAACP includes members of all ethnic groups and hues and many of those members have origins in African, Caribbean and other nations where people of African descent reside. According to a report from the Migration Policy Institute; about 36,000 immigrants of African origin were also eligible for the DACA program. Additionally, the report shows that over 20,000 youth from Caribbean nations of the Dominican Republic and Jamaica are eligible for DACA.
