DACA Ordered Restarted
A Third Federal US judge has ordered DACA restarted, also saying new applicants must be accepted.
Judge John Bates is the first of several federal judges challenging the revocation of DACA to order Trump administration to accept new applications.
Stating that the decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA )program was “virtually unexplained”, the US district judge John Bates said on April 24th that he would stay the order for 90 days to allow the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) an opportunity to “better explain” its decision.
Two other district court judges, in San Francisco and Brooklyn, previously ordered the Trump administration to spare DACA. Bates, however, went a step further and ordered that the administration accept new applications while litigation continues.
