A judge orders the Trump administration to reactivate the DACA program to prevent deportation of undocumented migrants

A federal judge in the United States this Friday gave the government of President Donald Trump three days of margin to publish in public newsletters and the web pages of the agencies involved that the Executive is already accepting new applications for the DACA program, which avoids deportations of undocumented migrants.

This program was approved by former President Barack Obama in 2012 and migrants who arrived illegally in the United States when they were minors and who do not have a criminal record can benefit from it.

Thanks to DACA, these people can avoid deportation for renewable two-year terms and can work or go to college.

Trump has tried since his arrival in the White House to terminate or restrict this program. In 2017, the president ordered an end to it, but had to backtrack when the Supreme Court ruled against it being abolished this June.

Two weeks ago, the same judge who made this decision, Nicholas Garaufis, stipulated that while in office, the Secretary of Homeland Security, Chad Wolf, was not legally able to reduce the duration of DACA applications to one year, according to has picked up CNN.

Biden has already assured that upon arrival he will maintain the program and will seek a definitive solution for the state of these people who came to the country as minors and are colloquially known as ‘dreamers’ (dreamers).
