US Judge Orders Trump Administration to Restore ‘Dreamer’ Immigration Program

Share

As part of his crackdown on all kinds of immigration, Trump moved to end the program in 2017, calling it unconstitutional.

Garaufis' order comes after another ruling he ordered in November found that acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf did not have any legal authority to close DACA to new applicants. In light of the Supreme Court's ruling, Wolf issued a memo in July saying that new applications for DACA would not be accepted and renewals would be limited to one year instead of two amid an ongoing review.

"This is a day that DACA recipients and young people have waited for, for far too long".

The Judge ruled that the DACA 2012 memo is the law of the land, and that three days from now, on Monday, DHS must be prepared to implement this - including accepting and processing new DACA applicants.

A judge with the U.S. District Court in Brooklyn told the Department of Homeland Security to post a public notice by Monday that states they will accept DACA petitions from immigrants who qualify and are not now enrolled.

"Our fearless plaintiffs have said from the beginning of this lawsuit that their home is here, and the court rightly recognized that today", she added.

Last month, a United States federal district court issued an order granting James' request for partial summary judgment, ruling that Wolf was not lawfully serving as acting secretary of homeland security at the time.

The findings of the agency also reported that DHS did not adequately follow the rules regarding the line of succession for the department's leadership.

"I am overjoyed for our #DACA recipients on the full restoration of the program!"

This means that the first time since September 2017, new applicants who were not previously eligible may now apply for the programme which shield undocumented immigrants who came to the USA as children from deportation.

"This is awesome, this is great, happiness, excitement, because we keep getting beat down by this administration and we keep coming back and we keep coming back stronger, and we keep winning cases, because we all know that this was always good", Silva said, referring to DACA.

"We stand with DACA families, but we must remind all that they are deserving of a real permanent solution", Democratic Assemblyman Edgar Flores said in a tweet.

They must have been brought to the USA before June 2007, and be able to prove they have continuously lived in the country since then.

In response, James told the Caribbean Media Corporation (CMC) "justice prevailed, not just for "Dreamers" but for all Americans".

As a litigator who challenged the Trump administration's efforts to terminate DACA, Tumlin is aware of the possibilities for rebuttal.

Tumlin said the ruling opens the door for more than a million immigrant youth who have been unfairly denied their chance to apply for DACA and secure their future in the country. But for tonight, she said she's celebrating.
