Young undocumented immigrants can once again apply to renew DACA status, despite the Trump administration's efforts to end the program, The New York Times reported. He also served as the director of the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts until January 4, 2015. The administration could also ask higher courts for a stay while it appeals Bates' ruling, as it has done in the San Francisco and NY cases.
Former US President Barack Obama created DACA in 2012.
She said the center already had about 15 potential new DACA applicants in five Central Florida counties that had expressed interest in the program.
Further, federal Judge John Bates said that the Donald Trump administration and its acting attorneys didn't put forth substantial reasoning for why the legislation is illegal, or why it should be removed.
DACA recipients are undocumented immigrants who entered the US before their 16th birthday.
For NU, Tuesday's ruling means undocumented students who were brought to the USA before the age of 16 would no longer face deportation, and that they would be able to legally work in the US after graduation. Earlier this year, two nationwide injunctions compelled the administration to accept renewal applications from current DACA beneficiaries, but no new applications.
In late 2017 and early 2018, Democrats threatened to block a spending increase that would have shuttered the USA government until Trump or Republicans codified protections for DACA recipients.
Justice Department spokesman Devin O'Malley said in a statement that the Trump administration's legal position on DACA is solid.
Bates is giving DHS 90 days to "better explain its view" that DACA is unlawful. Yet, politically, they couldn't leave nearly one million illegal aliens subject to immediate deportation; the political consequences would be too great. In the third paragraph Gulliver finally renders it "my good master Bates".
Spurred by the court decisions, the City of Newburgh-based YWCA has been helping existing DACA recipients with the renewal process.
Kathleen Campbell Walker: President Trump has appeared to waffle in his level of support for DACA beneficiaries.
According to South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT), a non-profit organization, a total of 5,500 Indians and Pakistanis are covered under DACA, and an additional 17,000 from India are eligible for it.
