    All New DACA Applications Will Be Rejected, Renewals Shortened, DHS Says

    BY ZACHARY STIEBER

    All new applications to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program will be rejected, under a new memo issued July 28 by Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf.

    DACA is a highly controversial program that shields hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children from deportation. It was created through executive order by then-President Barack Obama in 2012.

    “I direct DHS personnel to take all appropriate actions to reject all pending and future initial requests for DACA, to reject all pending and future applications for advance parole absent exceptional circumstances, and to shorten DACA renewals consistent with the parameters established in this memorandum,” Wolf wrote.

    Advanced parole refers to applications that allow an immigrant to travel outside the United States and return lawfully.

    All renewal applications for DACA recipients already shielded by the program will be adjudicated on a case-by-case basis. Approvals will only be good for one year, instead of the previous two-year period.

    The new rules are in place while the Trump administration conducts a comprehensive review of the program and its legality, a senior administration official told reporters on a call before the memo was released.

    DACA “presents serious policy concerns that may warrant its full rescission” but fully rescinding the policy “would be a significant administration decision that warrants additional careful consideration,” according to Wolf.

    The Supreme Court on June 18 blocked President Donald Trump’s bid to end the program implemented by his Democratic predecessor. Justices said Trump could legally end the program but claimed his administration didn’t provide proper justification for doing so.
