A federal judge ruled Saturday that Chad Wolf, the acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, was unlawfully serving in his position when he issued a memorandum in July limiting the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The parties to the litigation will discuss next steps at a conference this week.
BAL Analysis: The ruling does not immediately change the DACA program and, pending another ruling or additional guidance from DHS, the government will continue to accept DACA renewal applications, but not new enrollees. It will also limit renewal grants and work authorization to one-year periods. BAL continues to follow the litigation and will provide clients with important information as it becomes available.
