The United States District Court for the District of Columbia again concludes that DHS's September 2017 decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was both subject to judicial review and arbitrary and capricious. However, the Court will continue the stay of its order of vacate for twenty days to permit the government to determine whether it intends to appeal the Court's decision and, if so, to seek a stay pending appeal.
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is an administrative program that could end by executive order at any time. At this time, we do not know what the future of the DACA program holds. President Trump has pledged to end the DACA initiative. However, he has taken no such action.
