Ruling on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

On Friday, July 16, 2021, U.S. District Court Judge Andrew Hanen issued a court order invalidating the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Although DACA will remain in place for current recipients, the order directed the government to stop processing new DACA applications while allowing the processing of renewals pending appeals. Here is a quick break down about Judge Hanen partially ending DACA from United We Dream.

Advancing Justice: “The Asian Americans Advancing Justice affiliation condemns this decision from Judge Hanen, who has a history of anti-immigrant rulings and is playing politics with people’s lives by attacking this program that is widely supported by Americans. We remain confident that the DACA program is on firm legal ground and urge the federal government to swiftly appeal this case.” Read their full statement here.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)

DACA: Despite the recent Supreme Court decision that found that the Trump administration’s 2017 rescission of DACA was done in an arbitrary and capricious way that violated the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), DACA continues to be at risk of being scaled back further or terminated completely by the Trump administration. A memorandum issued on July 28, 2020 by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) scales back the availability of the DACA program while the administration determines whether to fully rescind DACA.
