Justice Department to SCOTUS: We Can’t Give Work Permits to DACA Migrants

Breitbart: The Department of Justice (DOJ) has quietly told the Supreme Court that it does not have the legal authority to issue work permits to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) migrants and has effectively invited the court to block the annual award of more than one million work permits to migrants.

“If the [judges] make a decision, it would have a huge impact,” said John Miano, a lawyer who is seeking to end two of the many work-permit programs. Prior presidents created the two programs, which allow U.S. companies and Indian managers in the United States to annually hire roughly 150,000 Indians for technology jobs sought by American graduates.

The invite is on page 19 of a “Reply Brief” that DOJ sent to the Supreme Court on October 28. The court will hear the DACA case on November 12.

The DOJ’s brief narrows the department’s prior 2018 claim that Section 1324a of federal law allows the administration to approve an unlimited number of work permits for foreigners: read more

  1. “…a group of companies sent a letter to DHS on November 8 protesting a proposal to delay the award of work permits to Central American migrants.”

    I want a list of those companies names, please.

    > SCOTUS will fuck us again.

    While we lay on the couch, fluffing our cheeks.

    “I want a list of those companies names, please.”

    Damn straight! If they won’t give first preference to hiring Americans, I won’t give first preference to spending my money with them.

  4. I consulted for a while with a company loaded with Indian visa holders and which outsourced a lot of work to India. What a sh—storm of fu—twaddle that place was! Management thought they were industry leaders because the CEO gave wonderfully pompous speeches with jargon-laden content-free Powerpoints. But jeez, the Indian brigade produced next to nothing of value. What should have been a simple 5-minute tweak requested by a client was like a hamster birthing a rhinoceros. If they wanted to order a cheese sandwich it would’ve taken them six months of meetings and a million dollar inscrutable software upgrade.

  5. ChiGuy,
    Seems to be symptomatic of large-bureaucracies.
    I worked for the FedGov and the only time they found any common sense was when they tripped over it. Doing things simply was illegal.

    Needless to say, someone (certainly not me) was profiting – otherwise it’s madness.

    izlamo delenda est …

  6. Tony R–You needed to keep reading! From the linked article:

    “The letter was sent by Ben &Jerry’s, DoorDash, Airbnb, Chobani, Western Union, and several other companies.”

    It’s hard to boycott companies when I would never buy their products anyway. Maybe we should put little stickers on their products in the stores: “This company sells out American Workers”. Chobani is really horrible. Don’t buy their stuff.

  7. If they were offered work permits they’d turn them down anyway. Why work when they’re living like kings on the taxpayer largesse.
    Food, housing and education etc.

  8. “Invite” them? Odd terminology. Thus ain’t a coffee klatch. It’s the health, wealth and sovereignty as a nation, all of which the founding fathers deemed as vital to “keeping the republican”.

  9. Haven’t we had this debate before, somewhere in history?
    What do we do with the ones that were brought here through no fault of their own? Or born here to people who should never have been here?
    Didn’t we settle this once and for all?
    Isn’t that the definition of progress?
    Not having to retread the same exact arguments time after time after time after time after time after time after time?
    I’m not adopting any more children into my family (amnesty)!
    I’m not harboring fugitives from the law (sanctuary cities)!
    I’m sick and tired of not being able to have a final resolution that we can carry throughout the future generations (stupid fucking liberals)!

    When told to “Pick your own damn cotton!”, they said “You can’t pay us enough.” So “we” laid on the couch, picked our navel lint, and called it capitalism. (Cause Karl always had a purty turn of phrase.)

    Let’s not revisit the issue.
