A federal judge from the District of Columbia reiterated that the administration of the president Donald Trump must fully restore deferred action for childhood arrivals ( DACA , for its acronym in English) and gave the government a period of 20 days to appeal the decision. However, the validity of this ruling will not be immediate. The judge in Washington DC said the order will be delayed until August 23 to allow the government to appeal, but denied a Justice Department motion to reconsider its previous decision, which said there were still deficiencies in the government’s reasoning to terminate DACA. . The program was reinstated on January 9 by order of a federal judge in California, in a judgment that was ratified on February 13 by a Brooklyn court and on April 24 by Judge Bates himself, who instructed the government to reestablish the program and accept new enrollees. This opinion is the final judicial blow to Trump’s decision to end Obama’s executive order. “This Friday’s ruling confirms our position and arguments, that the Deferred Action 2012 (DACA) is legal and that the decision of President Trump’s government to cancel the program on September 5 of last year is unconstitutional,” he told Univision. News Cristina Jimenez, executive director of United We Dream (UWD), the main organization of dreamers in the country. “So far, there are four judicial decisions in our favor and two of them by Judge Bates,” he added. The program is still valid On April 24, Bates had set a deadline of 90 days for the government to argue the status of the program and then decide on new registrations. This Friday, he extended the final decision until August 23. If the government does not appeal from here to August 23, DACA will come into force in full including the new dreamers. Jimenez also explained that the opinion of this Friday indicates that the DACA program “Remains in force in the same terms found after the ruling of a California court on January 9 , which canceled the cancellation made by Trump. And it leaves in suspense the inscriptions of new dreamers until the same court rules on the matter “. While that date arrives, Jimenez said that those dreamers who qualify to renew their work permits, “do it and do not miss this valuable opportunity”. The Office of Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) says that permits must be extended between 120 and 150 days before they expire. Jiménez also said that UWD has paid the re-enrollments of some 2,000 low-income dreamers who will continue to raise funds. On August 8 a vital decision is expected for DACA The judge made this opinion public a week before it became known decision that will be vital for the future of deferred action, that will be issued by the same Texas judge who in 2015 canceled DAPA, the program that protected from deportation 5 million undocumented immigrants who were parents of citizens and permanent residents, and the expansion of DACA. It will be next August 8 when, in a South Texas district court in Brownsville, Judge Andrew S. Hanen will determine if the program is legal, or eliminate it arguing that it was illegal from the start, as the government maintains of Trump. The executive director of UWD said that “there is concern” about this decision and pointed out that, in case of an adverse ruling, this matter will reach the Supreme Court. “We are prepared to continue fighting for our rights,” he said. On May 1, seven states led by Texas sued the Trump government to eliminate DACA, a program that was canceled on September 5 but reinstated in January by a federal court in California. If you eliminate it, some 700,000 dreamers will be on the verge of deportation from the United States.
