'Dreamers' ask to defend DACA program against Texas legal assault

  'Dreamers' ask to defend DACA program against Texas legal assault A group of young immigrants asked a U.S. federal court on Tuesday for permission to have a judge consider their interests in a lawsuit filed last week by Texas and six other states to force an end to the program that protects some immigrants who arrived illegally as children from deportation.The 22 immigrants, all of whom were granted protection under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA), said in the court filing that they were not represented in the lawsuit, since both the plaintiffs, the seven states, and the defendant, the federal government, want to end the program.

Mansfield ISD in North Texas put Bailey on paid administrative leave at the start of this school year, following complaints from a parent that she was “promoting the ‘homosexual agenda ’” by showing her class a photo of her and her now -wife, Julie Vazquez, as a federal lawsuit filed earlier this month.

On April 4, Bailey wrote a letter to the district, asking to be reinstated to Charlotte Anderson, and on April 24, the school district renewed her contract.

"The school district suspended me because they were uncomfortable with my sexual orientation," Bailey stated in a handwritten letter to the superintendent. "Until the district issued a false public press release, the school district did not even have the decency to tell me why exactly I was suspended."

But on May 1, Bailey was informed by Vaszauskas that she would be transferred to a secondary school instead of going back to Charlotte Anderson.

Bailey had stated in her April 4 letter that she wanted to return to Charlotte Anderson.

"The families there have been very supportive," she wrote in her letter. "I enjoy working with my colleagues there. I have done nothing improper. If the district were to transfer me to another school, it would leave my career with a stigma I could not escape."

In her lawsuit, Bailey said the school district has damaged her career and placed a "stigma" on her reputation, making it difficult to find work elsewhere.

The lawsuit names the Mansfield school district, Vaszauskas and Cantu.

The lawsuit asks for a jury trial with the goal of reinstating Bailey to Charlotte Anderson Elementary School. It also asks a jury to declare that she was discriminated against because of her sexual orientation. The case has been assigned to U.S. District Judge Sam Lindsay.
