Government to resume processing DACA renewals, citing judge’s ruling

The Department of Homeland Security announced Saturday it would resume processing renewal applications for young undocumented immigrants seeking protection from deportation under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA.

The Trump administration announced in September that it would eliminate DACA, which protects people who were illegally brought to the United States as children — so-called Dreamers — from being deported. The administration said at the time it did not have the authority to administer the program and it was up to Congress to make it law.

ut on Tuesday, U.S. District Judge William Alsup in San Francisco ruled that the Trump administration’s decision to eliminate DACA was based on a shoddy legal argument and called the move “arbitrary” and “capricious.”

Ruling in favor of the University of California, Alsup ordered the government to resume DACA renewal applications while challenges to the September order work their way through the courts.

The White House and President Donald Trump initially blasted the decision. 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and unless otherwise provided in this guidance, the DACA policy will be operated on the terms in place before it was rescinded on Sept. 5, 2017.”
