How will the federal judge's ruling to block DACA and DAPA impact people who are eligible to apply.

I have friends that will qualify for DAPA and DACA. How will Judge Andrew Hanen's ruling to temporarily halt the implementation of DACA and DAPA impact their ability to sign up? What are the next steps for them?


David Leopold's picture

Judge Hanen's ruling is disappointing but its only a temporary set back which, I am confident will be reversed. The President's Immigration Actions are solidly legal and will eventually go forward. In the meantime DACA expansion and DAPA will be delayed until the appeals courts review the case. Folks who are planning to apply for DACA or DAPA should continue to collect the necessary documents, save money for the government filing fees and stay informed through reliable immigration resources. IMPORTANTLY, the judge's ruling DOES NOT AFFECT 2012 DACA or its renewal process. If you already have DACA and are set to renew you should do so.
