On January 9, 2018, a federal court judge in California blocked the rescission of the DACA program. The ruling is effective nationwide and requires the U.S. government to ‘maintain the DACA program on a nationwide basis on the same terms and conditions as were in effect before the rescission on September 5, 2017, including allowing DACA enrollees to renew their enrollments…’ However, the ruling also states: 1) new DACA applications, may, but need not, continue to be processed; 2) the advance parole program may, but need not, be continued; and 3) that the government may remove any individual, including any DACA enrollee, who it determines poses a risk to national security or public safety, or whom the government otherwise determines needs to be removed. The government has announced its intention to appeal the decision.
