News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, THURS. Nov. 14, 2019: Over 10,000 Caribbean young DREAMERS are among the estimated 700,000 awaiting a ruling from the Supreme Court on DACA or the Obama Era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, News Americas has found.

The largest number are from Jamaica which has a total of 2,590 according to latest US Citizenship and Immigration Services, (USCIS) data.

Here’s where the other Caribbean nations stack up:

The Dominican Republic – 2,330

Trinidad and Tobago – 1,840

Guyana – 960

Belize – 820

The Bahamas – 340

St. Lucia – 300

Haiti – 150

Grenada – 150

St. Vincent and the Grenadines – 120

Barbados – 100

Dominica – 90

Antigua & Barbuda – 90

The British Virgin Islands – 30

St. Kitts & Nevis – 30

Turks & Caicos – 30

Cayman Islands – 20

Netherland Antilles – 20

Bermuda – 20

French Guiana – 20

Guadeloupe – 10


The Justices on the Supreme Court appear split along party lines with the conservative justices seeming ready to let the program go and side with the administration.

Demonstrators gather in front of the United States Supreme Court, where the Court is hearing arguments on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals – DACA – that could impact the fates of nearly 700,000 “dreamers” brought to the United States as undocumented children, on Tuesday, November 12, 2019, in Washington, DC.

Such a decision would be devasting to the DREAMERS who because of President Obama were able to attain a work permit and travel documents to live and work here legally. Donald Trump rescinded that order leaving the DREAMERs in limbo and protected only by appellate court rulings.

A ruling against DACA by the Supreme Court could mean deportation for the 700,000 – many of whom came to the US as children and know only this country as home.
