Federal Judge Delivers Temporary Relief for DACA Recipients

Last night, a federal judge in California temporarily blocked the Trump Administration from ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Per the court order, anyone who had DACA status as of the date President Trump ordered that the program be rescinded, September 5, 2017, may renew their DACA status while the lawsuits challenging the end of the program remain pending.

In the meantime, President Trump met with Congressional leaders yesterday to discuss a possible long-term solution for DACA recipients, commonly known as ‘dreamers’. President Trump and some Republican members of Congress seem willing to strike a deal with Democrats to protect dreamers, so long as additional border protection is provided.
