Two Federal Judges blocked the program from being rescinded, what does that mean? Even though today would be the official deadline for the program to end, the fact that the Supreme Court refused to hear the Administration’s appeal means DACA applications will continue to be accepted.
Here's an article form NBC News today:
Disappointed over the lack of action by the White House and Congress over the long-term fate of DACA and immigration reform, Dreamers are focusing their energies on this year's elections and mobilizing through political action.
Back in September, President Donald Trump had marked Monday as the the last day of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, better known as DACA, program. The Obama-era executive action allowed young undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as young children to apply to work and study in the country without fear of deportation.
But two federal judges blocked the Trump administration from rescinding the program and the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear the government’s appeal, which expanded Dreamers’ time frame to garner congressional support for a permanent solution.
“They kind of gave people a relief,” said Astrid Silva, a DACA beneficiary and co-founder of Dream Big Vegas in Nevada and who has been involved in immigrant and political activism for nearly 10 years. She worked with former Sen. Harry Reid, a Nevada Democrat, and put pressure on the Obama administration before the former president announced the DACA program.
