U.S. again accepting DACA renewal requests after judge bucks Trump

In his order on Tuesday, Alsup said 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" while legal challenges play out in court.

"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and unless otherwise provided in this guidance, the DACA policy will be operated on the terms in place before it was rescinded on September 5, 2017", the update said. "So great great news for DACA that we will now be able to do DACA renewals".

The announcement comes days after a federal judge in California temporarily blocked the Trump administration's efforts to end DACA.

In a statement issued Saturday, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services said those previously granted deferred action under DACA may request renewal by filing the proper forms. But it's not clear where negotiations stand after Trump allegedly made vulgar and derisive comments about accepting immigrants from "shithole countries" during a meeting Thursday with senators at the White House. "Like the president's meeting with congressional leaders demonstrated, there are many different ideas on how we get there, but our members are committed to working with leadership to fix the problem - beginning with a solution that includes DACA, increased border security, and reducing the backlog in our immigration courts". That was the date on which Trump announced his decision to terminate the Obama-era program that shielded some 700,000 young undocumented immigrants from deportation.

That number will soar to over 1,000 a day after March 5, when the program was set to begin being phased out, with all permits expiring by the end of September 30, 2019.

The agency said it won't be processing applications for those who have never before received DACA protections and no new applications will be accepted.

DACA has protected about 800,000 people, many of them college-age students.

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

Trump promised to end the program during the presidental campaign, and in announcing it was being phased out, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions called it an unconstitutional circumvention of Congress.
