Federal Judge’s Ruling On DACA – November 14th, 2020
A federal judge in New York ruled that Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf was appointed improperly and thus his DACA memorandum suspending DACA was also improper. In 2017 the Trump’s administration filed an executive order that they planned on ending the DACA program. As a result, there were a lot of lawsuits filed and in September 2020 the Supreme Court ruled on it stating that the manner in which the administration sought to end DACA was invalid and thus should be restored to its original form until it’s properly unwound. Despite the Supreme Court’s ruling, Chad Wolf issued a memorandum stating that they would not accept new applicants and that work permits would go from 2 years to 1. The new Federal Judge ruling on DACA is good news for DACA applicants who have their applications pending. This also possible allows for new applicants to who were perhaps underage in 2017 to apply for DACA for the first time. We are still hoping for a permanent solution for the DACA program with a pathway to citizenship for all our “dreamers” and do what is right for these law-abiding citizens who to no fault of their own are ineligible for a permanent status in the US.
