The Government of Mexico welcomes the decision of the United States Department of Justice to file an appeal with the Supreme Court to review a lower court's decision to maintain the suspension of the expanded version of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) and the Deferred Action for Parents of U.S. Citizens and Legal Residents program (DAPA).

Mexico reiterates the importance that these deferred action programs have for immigrants as a means of fully integrating them into their communities. Suspending the implementation of these programs leaves millions of people in uncertainty and denies the many contributions they make to the economy and society of the United States.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, through its consular network and its Embassy in the United States, will closely follow this process in order to keep the Mexican community informed on these developments.
