Federal Judge ruling on Tuesday clears the way for U.S. Immigration authorities at USCIS to begin processing DACA initial applications again. Since September of 2017, the Trump administration announced changes to DACA to “wind it down” and that it would no longer be accepting new initial applications. This ruling yesterday indicates the government will be required to continue to process all DACA applications until the pending lawsuits over its legality and the legality of the Trump administration’s efforts to end the DACA program is finally decided by the Federal courts.
This is amazing news for young people who are eligible for DACA but had never had the chance to apply or missed out on applying.
