The United States Supreme Court gave a temporary victory to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program by refusing to hear the case in their current term. In this video by Ray Ybarra Maldonado, the attorney states that the earliest the Supreme Court will now here the case will be in October of 2019. The announcement of when to hear the case could come as early as February 2019, but likely wouldn’t result in a decision until early 2020.
The Supreme Court can take the case because the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals last year upheld the District Court’s ruling mandating USCIS continue to accept DACA renewal applications. For an overview of President Trump’s attempt to have the Supreme Court take the DACA case, click here.
Attorney Ray Ybarra Maldonado encourages all who are eligible to continue to renew their DACA status. Unfortunately, the program remains open only to those who have been or currently are in the program.
