Trump administration to resume processing DACA renewals

Trump administration to resume processing DACA renewals

The administration said in September that it was concluding the program. Under Alsup's ruling, renewal applications must still be accepted, giving those approved another two years from the new date of their application approval.

The announcement comes days after a federal judge in California temporarily blocked the Trump administration's efforts to end DACA.

A bipartisan group of Republican and Democratic senators working to find a compromise to coincide with a looming spending bill vote on January 19, announced Thursday they had reached a tentative agreement on an immigration bill that addresses several issues, including border security and allowing young undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S.as children, known as "Dreamers", to permanently legalize their status. A Washington Post article reported that said in an Oval Office meeting that the US needs people from places like Norway rather than "sh-hole countries" like Haiti and El Salvador.

Alsup ruled that the federal government must "maintain [DACA] on a nationwide basis" while legal challenges to ending the program proceed in court.

The program granted temporary protection from deportation to hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S.as children, often referred to as "dreamers".

"Some of them are losing their jobs, they're losing their driving privileges because their driver's licenses expire the same time as their work permits expire and they have difficulties with paying bills and rent", she said.

"If you previously received DACA and your DACA expired on or after September 5, 2016, you may still file your DACA request as a renewal request", the agency said on its website.

DACA has protected about 800,000 people, many of them college-age students.

The White House and President Donald Trump initially blasted the decision.
