Children, Future, and Memes: #ProtectTPS @lvanCejaTV #BREAKING A federal Judge has blocked @realDonaldTrump's effort to shut-down DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. He has ordered the administration to resume accepting renewal applications for DACA. Follow @undocumedia for updates on DACA. Repost @IvanCejatv: A federal judge has blocked President Donald Trump's effort to shut-down the Obama-era program that provides quasi-legal status and work permits to foreigners who entered the U.S. illegally as children. In a ruling Tuesday evening, San Francisco-based U.S. District Court judge William Alsup ordered the administration to resume accepting renewal applications for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, better known as DACA. Alsup said Attorney General Jeff Sessions' conclusion that the program was illegal appeared to be "based on a flawed legal premise." Unless halted by a higher court, the ruling will allow former DACA recipients who failed to renew by an October 5 deadline a chance to submit renewal applications and will also require the administration to allow renewal of applications expiring in the future. The decision does not permit new applications for DACA status. If the judge's order remains in place, it could also roil ongoing legislative efforts on DACA by undercutting the urgency many advocates have expressed, calling for legislation to be passed before large numbers of Dreamers begin losing their protected status in March.

Memes, New York, and Taken: Hundreds of immigrants will get to resubmit DACA renewals originally rejected as "late" It's the Trump administration's biggest reversal on immigration policy to date. Updated by Dara Lind | dara@vox.com | Nov 16, 2017, 11:43am EST Y TWEET SHARE 🚨 IMPORTANT DACA SHARE Many immigrants who did everything right to reapply for one last round of protection under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program — but missed the deadline due to circumstances beyond their control — are going to get another chance after reporting by Vox and others about how unfairly the administration enforced the deadline. The Trump administration initially claimed that 4,000 immigrants missed the October 5 deadline to apply for one last two-year extension of protections under the DACA program, which the administration announced in September would be shut down over the next six months (with an official end date of March 5, 2018). But reporting in recent days by Vox and the New York Times showed that an untold number of those applications had been mailed well in advance of the deadline — and had been delayed due to a mysterious weeks-long Postal Service slowdown, or had been dropped in a US Citizenship and Immigration Services mailbox on October 5 but not picked up by a courier service until the next day. On Wednesday night, the Department of Homeland Security announced that those DACA recipients will be allowed to reapply for renewal. The Trump administration isn’t guaranteeing that these applications will be approved. But it’s at least agreeing to consider applications it had previously rejected out of hand. That could mean another two years of protection from deportation for hundreds, maybe even thousands, of immigrants. And it marks the first major reversal on immigration policy from an administration that has generally taken pride in its hardline stance. USCIS will contact some immigrants who were affected — but others will have to contact the government themselves

Abc, America, and Children: New York and Washington Threaten to Sue Trump for the Termination of DACA @balleralert New York and Washington Threaten to Sue Trump for the Termination of DACA-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Attorney generals from both NewYork and Washington have threatened to sue the WhiteHouse amid Trump's decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ABC reports that Attorney Generals Bob Ferguson of Washington and Eric Schneiderman of New York issued statements Monday concerning the matter. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “Ending this policy represents an assault on the values that built this state and this nation. The president’s action would upend the lives of hundreds of thousands of young people who have only ever called America their home, including roughly 42,000 New Yorkers,” Schneiderman said in a statement along with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. “It will rip families apart, sow havoc in our communities and force innocent people — our neighbors, our friend, and our relatives — to live in fear.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “If President Trump follows through on his reported decision to cancel DACA after a six-month delay, the Washington Attorney General’s Office will file suit to halt this cruel and illegal policy and defend DACA recipients,” Ferguson said in his statement. “We have been working closely with legal teams around the country, and we expect to be joined by other states in this action.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ DACA was a program started in 2012 by the Obama administration. The program allows certain unauthorized immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children, to apply for deferred action on deportation and for work permits. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Ferguson has taken legal action against the Trump administration before. He was one of the first state attorneys general to pursue legal action against the travel ban Trump tried to implement earlier this year.
