Appeals court upholds DACA injunction
SAN FRANCISCO – (INT) – The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is keeping in place the injunction preventing the Department of Homeland Security from ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
The court’s decision announced Thursday ensures that the 800,000 beneficiaries of DACA will be able to retain or renew their grants and continue to legally work, study, serve in the military, and live in the United States.
The University of California is encouraging all eligible recipients to renew their DACA grants immediately.
University President Janet Napolitano said the decision is yet another strong message from the nation’s courts that the government’s attempt to rescind DACA was unlawful. The government’s only justification for rescinding DACA — that the program itself is legally flawed — is unfounded.
