United States again accepting DACA renewal requests after judge bucks Trump

Some Connecticut recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, say they still worry about their futures.

Mirka Dominguez Salinas, a DACA recipient, says she worries the federal order is only temporary.

On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge William Alsup issued a preliminary injunction blocking President Donald Trump's decision to end the Obama-era initiative.

Renewal applications will, however, only be accepted from people who previously received DACA and whose deferred action had expired on or after September 5, 2016.

DACA has protected about 800,000 people, many of them college-age students.

The Department of Justice has indicated it will appeal the judge's decision, a move that could again put the program on hold.

The president reiterated that he wants a merit-based immigration system.

Trump gave Congress six months to find a way to allow immigrant approved for the DACA program to remain in the US permanently. What will the end of the deferred action program mean?

Meanwhile, advocates applauded the announcement as they planned ways to help DACA recipients apply for renewals as soon as possible. "Like the president's meeting with congressional leaders demonstrated, there are many different ideas on how we get there, but our members are committed to working with leadership to fix the problem - beginning with a solution that includes DACA, increased border security, and reducing the backlog in our immigration courts". Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican, who presented a compromise that included using the 50,000 visas from the current lottery to extend protection to illegal immigrants from countries such as Haiti and El Salvador. Under Alsup's ruling, renewal applications must still be accepted, giving those approved another two years from the new date of their application approval.
