LET’S DACA ‘BOUT IT

The Story

A federal judge is temporarily putting DACA back in play.

What are you talking about?

Last year, the Trump administration said it was getting rid of DACA - the program that protects hundreds of thousands of people brought to the US illegally as kids from being deported. It expires in March unless Congress can come up with a replacement. Multiple states, orgs, and individuals sued to keep DACA in place.

And now?

This judge ruled that DACA stays put while lawsuits make their way through the courts. It means the government has to start accepting DACA renewal applications again.
