San Francisco-based U.S. District Court judge William Alsup “blocked President Donald Trump's effort to shut-down the Obama-era program that provides quasi-legal status and work permits to foreigners who entered the U.S. illegally as children.”
Alsop “ordered the administration to resume accepting renewal applications for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, better known as DACA.”
Alsup concluded “Attorney General Jeff Sessions' conclusion that the program was illegal appeared to be "based on a flawed legal premise."
“Unless halted by a higher court, the ruling will allow
* former DACA recipients who failed to renew by an October 5 deadline a chance to submit renewal applications,
*will require the administration to allow renewal of applications expiring in the future,
*The decision does not permit new applications for DACA status.”
“large numbers of Dreamers begin losing their protected status in March.”
A worldwide effort to resettle refugees caused by rising seas, war-torn homes and communities, and with so many people suffering because of events beyond their control, a massive effort has to be in place. As a world leader, U.S.A. and as a country that claims to care about suffering people, the POTUS has no choice but to take a leadership role in solving refugee problems.
