Supreme Court Issues DACA Decision

Today, the Supreme Court issued a DACA decision, ruling in favor of hundreds of thousands of DACA recipients and their families. Learn about what it means by reading the key points below:

  1. The Court says that the Trump administration’s termination of DACA is reviewable.
  2. DHS’s rescission of DACA was done improperly and in violation of the Administrative Procedure Act.
  3. As a result, the DHS’s termination is remanded to the Agency.
  4. THEREFORE – the Supreme Court says that 2012 DACA is BACK IN EFFECT.

Today’s decision is definitely a reason to celebrate for those who rely on the protections of DACA, but as the Supreme Court said today, it is up to Congress to provide a long-term solution for all Dreamers in the Unites States.

  1. Were under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012;
  2. Came to the United States before reaching your 16th birthday;
  3. Have continuously resided in the United States since June 15, 2007, up to the present time;
