Trump blasts Democrats as 'all talk and no action' on fixing DACA

14 January 2018

"Until further notice, and unless otherwise provided in this guidance, the DACA policy will be operated on the terms in place before it was rescinded on September 5, 2017", U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, a part of DHS, wrote on its website Saturday. "DACA gave them a more tolerable set of choices, including joining the mainstream workforce".

According to the reports, Judge Alsup, in his order on Tuesday, stated that the Trump administration's move to rescind DACA was done without following the proper legal procedures and that the federal government would have to "maintain the DACA program on a nationwide basis".

A bipartisan group of Republican and Democratic senators working to find a compromise to coincide with a looming spending bill vote on January 19, announced Thursday they had reached a tentative agreement on an immigration bill that addresses several issues, including border security and allowing young undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S.as children, known as "Dreamers", to permanently legalize their status.

USCIS said it was not accepting requests from those who had never been given deferred action under DACA. Already about 120 DACA recipients who failed to renew applications by October 5 deadline are losing deportation protections and work permits daily.

For today's election, 13 candidates were expected to participate, although only Umeh, the candidate of APGA, stood out. So even if the turnout is poor in other places, it has to be different here.

"Time is running out to pass a permanent legislative solution for DACA recipients", said U.S. Rep. Jeff Denham (R-Calif.), Co-chair of the Republican Main Street Caucus.

Meanwhile, advocates applauded the announcement as they planned ways to help DACA recipients apply for renewals as soon as possible. Becerra took to Twitter Saturday night after USCIS issued its update to encourage those eligible to reapply for DACA's protections.

The cost to file a renewal application will be the same as before, $495.

The ruling by U.S. District Judge William Alsup says the Trump administration must continue to accept DACA renewal applications, despite the president's decision in September to end new and renewal applications and let the program expire on March 5. That suit challenges the decision to end the program.
