This unique brief, submitted by academic sociologists and economists with expertise on DACA, immigration, and migration, draws upon amici’s original research and the most extensive and up-to-date body of knowledge on the life-saving and life-changing protections granted by DACA, as well as the devastating consequences to recipients, their family members, and their communities if the Trump Administration’s cancellation of DACA were permitted to take effect.

A lawsuit seeking class-action status filed in San Francisco federal court alleges that Wells Fargo denies auto loans to non-U.S. citizens who would otherwise qualify, according to a new story from the San Francisco Chronicle. The lawsuit is specifically about people here under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, which provides immigrants who came to the U.S. before age 16 with temporary deportation protection, an authorization to work, and the ability to apply for a social-security number.

En la demanda presentada en un tribunal de San Francisco, Eduardo Peña alega que el banco lo discriminó por su estatus migratorio cuando le negó un préstamo de automóvil en noviembre pasado, a pesar de contar con un buen reporte de crédito, empleo y estar amparado por el programa DACA desde 2012.
An Illinois man hit Wells Fargo Bank NA with a proposed discrimination class action in California federal court Tuesday, claiming the bank denies auto loan applications from U.S. residents who hold Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status simply based on their immigration status.
Eduardo Peña said the bank committed alienage discrimination against him and a large number of the 800,000 DACA-status individuals who are financially stable by categorically rejecting their car loan applications because they are not U.S. citizens, in violation of the Civil Rights Act of 1866.

A year after Toys R Us closed, tens of thousands of laid-off workers are getting a portion of the severance promised and then rescinded as the retailer unraveled.
While workers are getting $2 million, a fraction of the $56 million in fees awarded to Kirkland & Ellis, the law firm representing Toys R Us, the decision is still a victory of sorts. That's because pensions and severance payments are labeled as unsecured debt when a company files Chapter 11, making them low priority and less likely to be paid.
