Federal Court Blocks Trump DACA Cancellation
Last night a Federal Court Judge from the Federal District Court of Northern California ordered to block the decision to cancel DACA. There is little more information regarding specific details, but the order doesn’t appear to allow for new DACA applications only for the resumption of processing renewal applications. We are monitoring the immigration service as to whether there will be more information or guidance regarding these renewal applications, but we are also unfortunately expecting the U.S. government to attempt to appeal this court’s decision. Regardless, this is a very significant victory for Dreamers. Much credit and appreciation are due to the legal team that helped bring this lawsuit including our very own Luis Cortes who has served on the legal team as the expert on immigration issues. The report from Univision can be seen here; the report from the Washington Post is here and the report from the NY Times is here. We will try to keep you updated on any new information and stay tuned to news outlets for any breaking news or information. You can also contact the firm if you have questions on how this decision can affect you.
