A US judge orders Trump to reactivate the DACA

Por Rory

Donald Trump's plans to end protections against the deportation of thousands of undocumented youth received a new blow on Tuesday. A US judge ordered the president, Donald Trump, to reactivate the program for undocumented youth DACA with the admission of new applicants, in addition to continuing to renew its current beneficiaries, known as "dreamers".

The judge, John D. Bates, with court in Washington, considered "unexplained" the repeal of program DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) ordered by Trump in September last year and, therefore, concluded that it was "illegal". Bates said the suspension was "arbitrary and capricious" because the government "did not adequately explain its conclusion that the program was illegal." However, the judge froze the application of his own ruling for 90 days to give the United States Government the opportunity to justify why it ended the program.

If there are no relevant developments, the government "must accept and process new requests for DACA, as well as renewals" after 90 days, the judge decided. "Every day that the agency delays, is one day that an undocumented person who would otherwise be eligible to receive DACA benefits is exposed to deportation for an illegal action," Bates concluded. The suspension of DACA ordered in September by Trump had to go into effect on March 5, although it never materialized because of the legal challenges faced by the president's decision. In fact, in January, another federal judge already ordered the partial reactivation of DACA with the admission of renewal applications to those who had previously received the benefits of this program and who were running out of protection.

The DACA plan was enacted in 2012 by then-President Barack Obama to protect from deportation and grant temporary work and residence permits to some 690,000 young people who came to the United States as children, known as "dreamers." In its plans to combat immigration, the Trump government opted to repeal the program by considering it illegal, a decision that would have left these young people without their permits and at risk of deportation. Trump, however, offered the Democrats a new plan to regularize 1.8 million undocumented immigrants in exchange for congressional approval of 25 billion dollars to build the wall on the border with Mexico, an agreement that the opposition did not accept.
