The Court’s decision to overturn the Trump administration’s termination of DACA is a monumental victory for nearly 700,000 DACA recipients, who can now continue to safely live, work, and study in the United States. Today’s decision also returns DACA to its initial form and reopens the DACA program to new applicants. All eligible individuals are encouraged to consult with an immigration attorney to apply for, or renew, their DACA immediately.

Today, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled to allow the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program to continue. The Court found that the Trump administration’s decision to terminate the program was “arbitrary and capricious” under the Administrative Procedures Act and failed to consider the hardship to DACA recipients. The ruling allows DACA recipients to continue to receive the protections and benefits of the program.

On June 18, 2020 the U.S. Supreme Court sided with DACA recipients ruling that the way in which the Trump administration rescinded the DACA program in 2017 was unlawful. The decision is a huge victory for immigrant communities and their allies who mobilized to protect the DACA program.

Issue Brief

A Supreme Court decision, anticipated between now and the end of June, will determine the fate of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. While pollsters report that 84% of Americans support DACA across the political spectrum, there is deep concern that repeated blows to our immigration system has desensitized us all to the impact of these decisions. The end of DACA, which advocates are bracing for, will have devastating ripple effects across our communities nationwide, as a legislative solution such as a DREAM Act has yet to be realized.
