DACA is Here To Stay
Updated: Mar 7, 2022
The United States Supreme Court blocks the Trump Administration from ending DACA for millions of dreamers.
In a 5-4 decision, Chief Justice Roberts sided with the liberal justices of the court to keep DACA in place, stating the Trump Administration did not meet the grounds for ending this Executive Order. What does this mean for grantees for DACA today? It means you can still continue to renew your work permit for another two years.
This decision would rescind the Department of Homeland Security's memo in 2017, which attempted to end DACA, reverting to the 2012 Executive Order President Obama signed for Dreamers. In theory, initial applications are once again allowed to be submitted, but DHS has yet to issue instructions to accept such initial applications.
