Trump Administration Resumes Accepting DACA Renewals Following Court Order

Trump Administration Resumes Accepting DACA Renewals Following Court Order

The federal government, citing a recent court order, said Saturday that it is again accepting requests for grants of deferred action under the DACA, or "dreamers", program, which has protected thousands of young people from deportation.

USCIS officials said the program will be operated as it was before it was rescinded on September 5, 2017 by the Trump administration.

But in a statement Saturday, DHS said: "Until further notice, and unless otherwise provided in this guidance, the DACA policy will be operated on the terms in place before it was rescinded on September 5, 2017".

"Hello my people just got the news that USCIS will be accepting DACA applications starting now".

The announcement comes after a U.S. judge on Thursday temporarily blocked a decision by President Donald Trump to end DACA later this year. At a minimum, members would like to see these principles included: a permanent legislative solution for DACA recipients, increased border security measures, and reforms to address the backlog of immigration cases in our courts.




Former President Barack Obama enacted DACA to keep the undocumented immigrants, known as dreamers, from being deported.

But that agreement was cast into doubt the same day when a firestorm erupted after reports surfaced that President Trump, during a meeting with lawmakers over an immigration bill, asked why the US was accepting immigrants from "shithole countries" referring reportedly to immigrants from Haiti and Africa. What will the end of the deferred action program mean?

More: What is DACA and who qualified? "DACA gave them a more tolerable set of choices, including joining the mainstream workforce". Those accepted for the program received permits to work legally in the USA for two years, which could be renewed for additional 2-year periods. However, the administration doesn't have to process applications for those who have never before received DACA protections.

The White House and President Donald Trump initially blasted the decision.
