Trump Administration Resumes Accepting DACA Renewals Following Court Order

Share

In a statement issued Saturday, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services said those previously granted deferred action under DACA may request renewal by filing the proper forms.

"Hello my people just got the news that USCIS will be accepting DACA applications starting now".

In deciding to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the Trump administration had called it an egregious example of executive overreach.

In his order on Tuesday, Alsup said that the Trump administration's move to rescind DACA was done without following the proper legal procedures, and that the federal government would have to "maintain the DACA program on a nationwide basis" while legal challenges play out in court.

It was unclear at the time, The Washington Post reported, when DACA recipients could begin applying for renewal of their work permits as a result of the court order.

Wednesday, the president criticized the judge's decision on Twitter.

"This week, President Trump provided leadership on a hard issue that our nation has faced for decades and Main Street members want to help the president address our broken immigration system", said U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.), Chairman of the Republican Main Street Caucus.

Trump questioned why the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa rather than places like Norway, as he rejected a bipartisan immigration deal. Already about 120 DACA recipients who failed to renew applications by October 5 deadline are losing deportation protections and work permits daily.

"If you previously received DACA and your DACA expired on or after September 5, 2016, you may still file your DACA request as a renewal request", the agency said on its website.

Trump said in September that he was ending the Obama-era program. The agency will not be accepting new applications from immigrants who may have been eligible for the program, but never applied.
