NQAPIA urges U.S. Supreme Court to defend DACA and protect LGBTQ dreamers

[On November 12, 2019] the U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments on Trumps' proposed cancellation of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in DHS v. Regents of the University of California. The National Queer Asian Pacific Islander Alliance (NQAPIA) led the LGBT community in urging the Court to uphold DACA through an amicus ("friend of the court") brief that highlights the special concerns of LGBTQ Asian, South Asian, and Pacific Islander (API) DACA recipients.

DACA has helped thousands of LGBT API young people trying to work, study, and improve their lives in the United States. Trump announced a cancellation of the DACA program but has been block by federal court. The cancellation of DACA will hurt 36,000 LGBT and 16,000 API DACA recipients mostly from South Korea, the Philippines, India, and Pakistan. An estimated 75,000 LGBT and 169,000 APIs are eligible for DACA.

More is at stake for LGBT DACA recipients because many come from countries where homosexuality is a crime. Trump's cancellation of DACA could result in more than just a deportation, but imprisonment or a death sentence.

NQAPIA's brief was joined by 35 groups - 19 LGBTQ Asian American, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Pacific Islander (APIs) groups and 16 LGBTQ organization. They are:

API Equality - Northern California (APIENC)

API PFLAG San Gabriel Valley Chapter
