JUDGE ORDERS FULL RESTORATION OF DACA, WITH 20 DAYS DELAY

Submitted by micol on Wed, 08/08/2018 - 07:34

federal judge ruled that the Trump administration must fully restore the DACA program but delayed the order until August 23, 2018, to allow the government to respond and appeal. In the decision, the court stated, “The Court therefore reaffirms its conclusion that DACA’s rescission was unlawful and must be set aside.” The court also denied the government’s motion to reconsider, stating that “The Court has already once given DHS the opportunity to remedy these deficiencies—either by providing a coherent explanation of its legal opinion or by reissuing its decision for bona fide policy reasons that would preclude judicial review—so it will not do so again.” Additionally, the court states that it does not hold that DHS lacks the statutory or constitutional authority to rescind the DACA program, but rather that “if DHS wishes to rescind the program—or to take any other action, for that matter—it must give a rational explanation for its decision.” (NAACP v. Trump, 8/3/18)
