On February 26th, the U.S. Supreme Court declined a request by the Trump administration to hear an expedited appeal challenging the ruling of a federal court judge on January 9th that blocked the rescission of the DACA program. The federal court judge’s decision now awaits a ruling from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

 On February 26th, a federal court judge in California issued a preliminary injunction ordering the trump administration not to revoke enrollment in the DACA program without adequate notice, explanation, and an opportunity to respond.

On February 13th, a federal judge in Brooklyn issued a nationwide preliminary injunction prohibiting the Trump administration from ending the DACA program. The ruling does not require the government to accept new applications, and does not prevent the government from denying renewal applications on a case-by-case basis.
