United States again accepting DACA renewal requests after judge bucks Trump

United States again accepting DACA renewal requests after judge bucks Trump

But in a statement Saturday, DHS said: "Until further notice, and unless otherwise provided in this guidance, the DACA policy will be operated on the terms in place before it was rescinded on September 5, 2017". "So for those of you who have had DACA and need to renew it they will be accepting it", Yasser Sanchez, a Mesa immigration lawyer posted in a live Facebook video. The administration said at the time it did not have the authority to administer the program and it was up to Congress to make it law. "So great great news for DACA that we will now be able to do DACA renewals".

The announcement comes after a USA judge on Thursday temporarily blocked a decision by President Donald Trump to end DACA later this year.

Then on Thursday, a bipartisan group of senators presented the president with an agreement on new legislation for immigrants brought to the US illegally as children.

President Trump held a meeting with lawmakers on Tuesday about passing new legislation to allow the DREAMers to stay in the country, though he has pushed for funding for a wall with Mexico to be part of any immigration policy overhaul.

Rookie point guard Lonzo Ball also boasted about his teammate's scoring ability as the focal point of the offense. Randle would have likely played more minutes if the Lakers had not held a comfortable lead late in the game.

Donna Salcido, immigration services coordinator for InterServ, said there are about 15 St. Joseph residents she sees who are affected by the DACA ruling. 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.

The program granted temporary protection from deportation to hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S.as children, often referred to as "dreamers". As of the end of March, more than 200,000 people had been initially approved for the program, meaning they could legally work and were protected from deportation. That suit challenges the decision to end the program.
