Yet Another Court Says Trump’s Killing of DACA is Unlawful

Ruling does not allow for any new DACA applicants but those who have had DACA already can renew their applications now.

Washington, DC – Yesterday, a Federal district court judge said that Trump’s decision to kill DACA was unlawful and ordered Trump to justify why he did it within 90 days. The decision orders the government to accept new applications from people who have never had DACA before but the court paused that decision from going into effect for 90 days. This means that the ruling does not make any immediate changes and new DACA applicants cannot yet apply for the program.

The court decision adds to the mountain of top legal opinions that the killing of DACA was wrong and that the program itself is constitutional. The decision was made on lawsuits brought by Microsoft, Princeton University, the NAACP, the American Federation of Teachers and the United Farm Workers, representing the wide range of people and organizations who support the program.

United We Dream and the National Immigration Law Center have developed a fact sheet with the top 5 things everyone needs to know about this decision which is available here.

Sanaa Abrar, Advocacy and Policy Manager at United We Dream, said the following:

“This is yet another court decision saying that the Trump decision to kill DACA was wrong.

“While the decision doesn’t change who can apply for DACA, immigrant youth who have DACA now or who have had it in the past can keep it and can renew. Don’t wait — check out our DACA renewal blog on the United We dream website now and apply for your renewal if you are eligible.

“We’re asking the community to donate to the DACA renewal fund to ensure that those who are protected now are able to continue thriving under this program that our community and allies won years ago. United We Dream has already provided over $750,000 in scholarships to pay for DACA renewal fees but we still have more requests for help. We don’t know how long people will have to submit renewal applications so the time for help is now.

“DACA has transformed the lives of hundreds of thousands of youth and their families. We will not stop fighting until every single person in our community is able to live with safety and dignity because we are #HereToStay!”

United We Dream is the largest immigrant youth-led organization in the nation, a powerful network made up of over 400,000 members and 48 affiliate organizations across 26 states. UWD’s vision is to build a multi-racial, multi-ethnic movement of young people who organize and advocate at the local and national levels for the dignity and justice of immigrants and communities of color in the United States.

    personal imi place ideea mai ales de reutilizare a lor. (is cumparate cu 2 scopuri) Daca ar fi fost cheltuiti doar pt covor probabil era contra.

    I’ve been having issues with my Windows hosting. It has set me back quite a bit while making the next list. This is the current list that I have. I should add another list in less than a week. I’ll let you all know when the next list is ready. Thank you for your patience.
