The year started off with good news for the 800,000 Dreamers from all around the United States; on Jan. 9th, the resurrection of DACA was announced.

 

The Washington Post News reported that Trump called the program an “illegal amnesty” and promised to put an end to DACA. However, William Alsup, a federal judge in California, blocked the Trump administration’s action that attempted to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

 

Alsup ordered that the administration continue receiving DACA renewal applications, but must not receive new applications from first timers.

 

Donald Trump wasn’t happy with this situation, and called the court case unfair on Twitter. “It just shows everyone how broken and unfair our Court System is when the opposing side in a case (such as DACA) always round to the 9th circuit and almost always wins before being revered by higher courts.”

 

The Ninth US Circuit Court of Appeals is considered a liberal court and has also blocked several versions of Trump’s travel ban.

 

According to CNN, the White House called the decision “outrageous.”  

“An issue of this magnitude must go through the normal legislative process. President Trump is committed to the rule of law, and will work with members of both parties to reach a permanent solution that corrects the unconstitutional actions taken by the last administration,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders stated.

 

According to NBC News, Trump issued after Sessions’ remarks, said it was, “in the best interest of our country” to “begin an orderly transition and wind-down of DACA, one that provides minimum disruption.”

 

“In effect,” the 45th President said, “I am not going to just cut DACA off, but rather provide a window of opportunity for Congress to finally act.”

Voice of America states that Democratic leaders will not vote on any bill until Dreamers are protected permanently.

 

DACA is only a bandaid to the immigration crisis and activists will continue to fight for a permanent solution for a Clean Dream Act to protect undocumented from deportation.
