Judge John D. Bates of the Federal District Court for the District of Columbia suspends the government’s decision of terminating the DACA program, and gives the Department of Homeland Security 90 days to justify the end of DACA.
“If the department fails to do so, it must accept and process new as well as renewal DACA applications”
Renewal applications are currently accepted pursuant to a previous court decision, but this new judgement will hopefully allow new DACA applications after the 90 day period.
The Judge’s decision does not mean the program will be permanently resumed yet, please stay tuned for more information and do seek professional advice before making any determinations.
