Contributing sentiments towards policy:

60% : Even former President Donald Trump, whose bid to end the program was blocked in a 5-4 ruling by the Supreme Court in June 2020, said early in his presidency DACA was a "very, very difficult subject" for him because "you have some absolutely incredible kids."
56% :Texas claims the more than 100,000 DACA recipients in the state cost it over $250 million per year in social services, health care and education costs, and that they have an advantage in obtaining jobs because under the Affordable Care Act businesses don't have to provide them with health insurance as they do for other employees.
56% : The District of Columbia and 22 states either led by Democratic governors or with one legislative chamber controlled by Democrats said in an amicus brief they have a profound interest in keeping DACA alive.
55% : But no group of undocumented immigrants has garnered more sympathy, with numerous polls showing a large majority of Americans support giving DACA recipients, also known as "Dreamers," a pathway to citizenship.
51% : At root, Texas' argument that DACA is unlawful relies on age-old nativist grievances: Undocumented immigrants take jobs that could go to unemployed U.S. citizens and residents, and they are a drain on states' taxpayer-funded budgets.
51% :DACA gives them protection from deportation and allows them to get federal work permits and driver's licenses for renewable two-year periods.
50% :"Texas chose to challenge DACA only years after policy issued," Feigenbaum said.
45% : Now that we're a full decade later eliminating DACA would cause extraordinary disruption for recipients, their U.S. citizen children, employers and states."He focused on the hundreds of DACA recipients who serve in the U.S. military.
37% : U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen, a George W. Bush appointee, declared DACA unlawful in July 2021.
36% : Arguing before a three-judge panel of the Fifth Circuit on Wednesday in New Orleans, New Jersey Assistant Attorney General Jeremy Feigenbaum said Hanen was wrong to vacate the 2012 memo creating DACA and should have remanded it to DHS instead to fix any defects.
35% :Joined by eight other Republican-led states, Texas sued in May 2018 to undo the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, arguing then-President Barack Obama overstepped his authority when he launched DACA in 2012 as a workaround of Congress' inability to pass legislation reforming the nation's immigration laws.
