Federal Court Rules That Trump Administration Must Continue to Accept DACA Renewals
January 10, 2018

In an Order dated January 9, 2018, the U.S. District Court in California v DHS issued a nationwide injunction prohibiting the Trump administration from terminating the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (“DACA”) as it relates to renewals. The court ordered DHS “to maintain the DACA program on a nationwide basis on the same terms and conditions as were in effect before the rescission on September 5, 2017, including allowing DACA enrollees to renew their enrollments.” The administration has vowed to appeal and will likely seek to place this ruling on hold in the appellate court. Until that happens, however, the Order provides that DHS must accept certain DACA renewals as of today. The Order makes it clear, though, that DHS does not have to accept applications from individuals that have not previously filed for DACA.
