In Direct Defiance of Federal Court Ruling, Trump Administration Refuses DACA Applications

Trump administration rejects new DACA applications as it works to end program


The Trump administration will reject new applications for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program as it seeks new avenues to dismantle parts of the program, the administration announced Tuesday.

The administration will also shorten the window for current DACA recipients, or so-called Dreamers, to renew their status from two years to one year, according to a Tuesday memo from the Department of Homeland Security.

The continued rejection of new applications comes despite an order by a federal court in Maryland two weeks ago for the administration to accept them.
