DACA is NOT Dead!
Texas District Judge Andrew Hanen has made it clear: He believes DACA is illegal and he will end it when he gets a chance. However, Hanen issued a rare ruling against the states wanting to end DACA immediately.
“Here, the egg has been scrambled," Hanen wrote. "To try to put it back in the shell with only a preliminary injunction and perhaps at great risk to many, does not make sense."
He questioned the states attempt to end DACA now and not back in 2012 when Obama’s executive order was enacted.
This ruling serves as an opportunities for DACA beneficiaries to renew their work permit and continue to receive deferred action. The Kansas and Missouri Dream Alliance knows the future of the program is in limbo but they will continue to process renewals, they will host a clinic on Sep 15, financial assistance is available.
