DACA Injunction

News | January 10th, 2018

On January 9th, a federal judge in California temporarily blocked aspects of the DACA repeal effectuated by the President on September 5th of last year. Takeaways:

  • DACA has NOT been fully reinstated. The judge's order is only to continue accepting DACA renewals for those who's protections have expired or will be expriring.
  • No new applications, no Advanced Parole.
  • This is a temporary measure. The judge's order is partially keeping DACA active only while the lawsuits by several states play out in court.
  • A permanent solution by Congress is still needed. We urge you to contact your representative to vocalize your support of a DREAM Act that will provide a humane path to citizenship for all people.
