DOJ Plans to Appeal DACA Ruling to Supreme Court

The Department of Justice filed an appeal with the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and plans to file a petition to the Supreme Court regarding Federal District Judge William Alsup decision to block the Trump Administration’s rescission of the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The DACA allows more than 800,000 young undocumented immigrants who were brought into the country as children to legally work and live in the U.S. temporarily. Federal Judge Alsup’s decision allowed these young immigrants to renew their DACA registration, thus, avoiding the possibility of deportation. The DACA was rescinded last September 2017 and is effective until only March 30, 2018. The DACA has been one of the thorniest issues in recent weeks with President Trump and Democrat and Republican Congressmen and Senators negotiating for a possible DACA legislation that will permanently provide a legal solution for undocumented young immigrants.
