DACA Nearly Fully Restored After Judge Rules Chad Wolf Not Lawfully Serving as Head of DHS

HeadlineNov 16, 2020

In a victory for young undocumented people, DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, has been restored to near-full operation, after another federal judge ruled acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf was not appointed to serve in his role, and therefore did not have the authority to issue restrictions on the program. Javier Valdés of Make the Road New York, one of the organizational plaintiffs in the case, said, “This victory is just the beginning. Not only must the Biden administration immediately protect DACA & TPS holders & reverse all of Trump’s nativist polices, but also provide swift relief & a path to citizenship for millions of undocumented families across the country.”
