DACA Defended! What happens now?

The US Supreme Court recently ruled that the Trump administration did not properly end the DACA program. This is good and bad news. First the good news: the Trump administration’s efforts to end the DACA program still have not been successful. Now the bad news: The US Supreme Court’s decision essentially gives the Trump administration general instructions about what the administration would need to do to properly end the program. Since the decision, the administration has said that it will attempt again to end the program, following the US Supreme Court’s recent ruling.

 

 

DREAMers be wary

As stated by AILA, “This article from the Associated Press reports that some advocates are advising DACA recipients to make sure they are not traveling abroad when Donald Trump is sworn in as president on January 20, 2017, and quotes AILA President William Stock on how Trump could rescind the DACA program.”

US Government Tries to Continue expanded-DACA and new DAPA programs roll-out despite injunction

A Texas federal district court issued an injunction against the US government from implementing its expanded-DACA and new DAPA programs. In response, the US governmentn filed an emergency request to stay that injunction. If the US’s order is granted, then it would be able to begin to receive expanded-DACA applications.
