Washington, D.C. – Today, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit in Richmond, Virginia, ruled that the Trump administration and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) didn’t have an adequate rationale for killing the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Bruna Bouhid-Sollod, DACA recipient and Senior Comms Manager at United We Dream, said:

“Another federal court has reiterated what we’ve always known: Trump’s decision to end DACA was wrong. This latest decision means that there is no split among the appeals court on DACA.

Although there are no changes to the program at this time, we encourage every DACA recipient who is eligible to renew to do it. DACA recipients and their families should visit RenewMyDACA.com to find information about renewing your protections now.

We also ask all people to support immigrant youth by contributing to the DACA renewal fund at DACARenewalFund.org.

While today’s news is good, members of Congress have the power to provide immigrants targeted by Trump, including  TPS and DED recipients, with a pathway to citizenship and permanent protection from deportation.”
