Since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on June 18 that the Trump Administration failed to provide an adequate justification for terminating the Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. This decision means that the DACA program will remain in place for the time being.  To learn more about the DACA program please click here.

However, since the Supreme Court’s decision, USCIS and the Trump Administration have not processed any DACA applications. They have not “granted nor rejected” any applications but have rather put them “on hold” as the government discusses the future of the program.

A District Judge ruled on Friday that the Trump Administration must clarify the program’s status by this Friday. The judge ruled that DHS must confirm by Friday whether the government could commit to updating its USCIS website and send receipts to DACA applicants who are confused about whether their applications have been processed. The current USCIS website has outdated and inaccurate information about the program and should be fixed as soon as possible. The judge has also instructed to propose a schedule for a briefing on whether the government should be held in contempt of the court.
