You may have also heard that on April 24, 2018, a federal judge in Washington D.C. ruled that the Trump Administration's decision to end the DACA program was “arbitrary and capricious." Judge John D. Bates, who was appointed by Republican President George W. Bush, has given the federal government 90 days to come up with a better rationale as to why the DACA program was terminated. IF the federal government cannot come up with a better reason, the judge has ordered that the new DACA applications be accepted and advance parole be reinstated.
So what does that mean for youth who qualify for DACA but have not applied yet?
Despite these changes, CHIRLA's legal department continues to work hard to ensure all DACA recipients who are eligible to renew do so immediately. Our legal clinic is open every , and at in our Main Office. Only the first 20 people in line when doors open are guaranteed same-day service.
