DOJ to Appeal DACA Ruling: 'It Defies Both Law and Common Sense'

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions is appealing a court ruling that reinstated DACA renewals

The Supreme Court Bar Association also met the Chief Justice and other judges. The government complied with the ruling, and U.S. Citizens and Immigration Services said Saturday it had "resumed accepting requests to renew a grant of deferred action under DACA" for individuals who were previously granted deferred action under DACA whose benefits expired after September 5, 2017.

The Justice Department on Tuesday said it plans to appeal a lower-court ruling that blocked the Trump administration from ending an Obama-era program aimed at shielding immigrants brought to the US illegally as children from deportation.

Now the SEC's chief judge selects the in-house judges, who are then approved by the SEC's personnel, U.S. Solicitor General Noel Francisco said in court papers cited by Bloomberg.

He also referred to the recent nine-judge bench judgement holding privacy as the fundamental right and said it was delivered in the Aadhaar case and said the procedure for deprivation of this right must be "just, fair, and reasonable". The DACA program, while allowing hundreds of thousands of them to remain in the country, and to work and go to school, does not guarantee them a path to citizenship. The department did not ask the Supreme Court for a stay of Alsup's ruling, which would have prompted quicker action on the part of the court.

For DACA recipients who are filing renewals, they're doing it while they can, because they really don't know how long this window of opportunity will be open.

"The government is hereby ordered and enjoined, pending final judgment herein or other order, to maintain the DACA program on a nationwide basis on the same terms and conditions as were in effect before the rescission".

Trump has expressed sympathy for the immigrants, who were brought to the United States by their parents as minors and did not knowingly break the law. Later, he also said any deal must also include funding for a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.

Lorella Praeli, the ACLU's director of immigration policy, said that Trump has failed to broker a deal with Congress that would protect the immigrants.

This ruling comes ahead of the possibility of a government shutdown driven by Trump and USA congressional leaders attempting to find common ground to retain DACA and address other immigration reform matters. If Donald Trump wants to change the law, he shouldn't break the law. For the time being, it is most prudent for DACA beneficiaries and other interested parties to act on the presumption that DACA will be rescinded, but the ultimate resolution of the issue will be decided by the Congress and the president. "They need to make a choice".

But advocates and young people with DACA status are breathing a sigh of relief.
