Small Victory for DREAMERS may be short lived
The Trump Administration has already announced that it will challenge Judge Alsup's decision which included granting a preliminary injunction keeping DACA in place pending litigation. It is not anticipated that the U.S. government will file an emergency motion to stay the preliminary injunction in the meantime. However, the Trump Administration has already appealed the decision to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and will also appeal the decision directly to the U.S. Supreme Court.
If you have ever been approved for DACA, you may want to contact a U.S. immigration attorney as soon as possible to see how the January 13, 2018 USCIS DACA update/pending litigation affects your future application for DACA.
