On Tuesday evening, the federal district court in DC found that the Trump administration’s termination of DACA was unlawful. U.S. District Court Judge John Bates wrote in his opinion that the Department of Homeland Security’s legal explanation for the decision to end DACA was not persuasive. This means that for the first time since DACA was rescinded back in September that the Department of Homeland Security may have to start accepting new applications for DACA. Judge Bates decision leaves open the possibility that the entire DACA program will be restored. In essence, DACA keeps winning in the courts.
For now, the DACA application process will remain open to young people who had already been granted DACA and are seeking to renew it.
So if you have never applied for DACA and are eligible, you may have an opportunity to apply, but we don’t know if that will happen yet. And if you have been granted DACA, go ahead and renew.
We are all in this together with you. We want to be a resource for you and for all of the children you love. Whether you need some info or you have info to share, you know where to go…LA Comadre.
