Is DACA Back After 3 Years? Federal Judge Rolls Back Previous DACA Halt

By Ella Bergquist November 17, 2020 1 min. read
DACA 2020

On November 14, 2020 a federal judge ruled that the previous stop for any new DACA applications would not be accepted was unlawful and would be overturned. Chad Wolf was the man who sent a memo ending DACA applications and limiting renwals to only one or two years amid an ongoing review. The Supreme Court blocked the Trump administration in attempt to end the program and Chad Wolf created this memo to buy the administration more time before deciding its next steps. A federal judge deemed that Chad Wolf was not legally serving as acting Homeland Security secretary when he signed these rules limiting DACA applications and renewals.

Who Will Get DACA Benefits?

DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) is a US immigration policy that allows some individuals who are undocumented in the US after being brought to the country as children to receive a 2 year period of deferred action from deportation and allowed a work permit. Those who will start receiving DACA benefits will be those who are eligible for DACA but could not apply due to the Trump’s administration cut off in September 2017.

Legal Issues with the DACA Program

In June 2020, the Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 vote that Trump’s administration’s 2017 decision to end DACA was legally flawed. A federal judge in Maryland is considering a motion to have the Trump administration declared in contempt of court for failing to reinstate the DACA program.

“The Supreme Court already ruled that President Trump’s attempts to unfairly punish Dreamers was unlawful, but now another federal court has ruled that this administration’s attempts to circumvent the courts in an effort to target and punish innocent young people is just as unlawful,” James said in a statement. “Time and time again, this outgoing administration attempted to use young immigrants as political scapegoats. … Our coalition will not hesitate to use every tool at our disposal to continue to protect these young people in every way possible. Si se puede!” – New York Attorney General Letitia James.

Truly a very systematic, professional and pleasant team. My student file was with Gunjan and Yasmeen. They handled my case so well, always replied to all my queries and really did the best they can to keep me calm during the process. Yasmeen is truly very professional and completed my application in a timely and very organized manner. Would definitely recommend this organization to everyone.

When you get the opportunity to go to the US for work from abroad, then I would say VisaPlace would be your best option to get all your documents in place. My 5 star feedback is based on the help I received from Danielle Grbic as she was really professional, I would straight away ask for Danielle to be in charge of your process. From the time that Danielle took over my case I felt confident that it will go well and at the end it went smoother than expected. On my own I would never have been able to get this internal work transfer done as a L1 visa and was best for the professionals to take charge. After arriving in the US, Danielle was still happy to assist with documents and advise. A huge thanks to Danielle and VisaPlace

I spoke with Lilly last week and she’s incredible. Very informative and you can tell she definably cares about her job. She wasn’t pushy at all and she’s there to help you figure out if this service is right for you. I’d recommend contacting VisaPlace if you’re thinkin of traveling internationally and you have questions about the different types of permits.

I had a great experience with Andrew Diamond from The Visa Place. Andrew was very knowledgable and helped us every step of the way. When we had a discrepancy with my spouse’s Visa Andrew helped us navigate the system in the USA. He even offered to speak directly to the customs and border control officer to help us iron out the situation. Overall the experience was very good and smooth. I highly recommend Andrew and his services at The Visa Place.
