Trump puts DACA programme 'on hold' despite Supreme Court ruling

Trump administration officials said during a federal court hearing on Friday that they have not “granted nor rejected” any applications for a programme designed to protect young undocumented immigrants from deportation, but rather have put them “on hold” as the government discusses the future of the programme.

The virtual hearing in the US District Court in Maryland was the first time the administration addressed reports that the Department of Homeland Security was not accepting applications for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme – despite a recent Supreme Court ruling and a federal judge's order requiring the government to resume accepting applications.

“Although the applications will be received by the department, they will be neither granted nor rejected, and instead will be held, placed into a bucket pending a policy consideration that takes place and that now I can tell you is still ongoing at the department,” said Stephen Pezzi, a lawyer with the Justice Department.

US District Judge Paul Grimm, who ordered last week that the government comply with court directives to restore the DACA programme, ruled on Friday that the Trump administration must clarify the programme's status to the public within 30 days. He instructed Mr Pezzi to confirm by next Friday whether the government could commit to updating its US Citizenship and Immigration Services website and sending receipts to DACA applicants who are confused about whether their applications have been processed.

“... the applications will be ... placed into a bucket” ?

The hearing on Friday in US District Court in Maryland was part of the fallout from the Supreme Court's decision in June, which surprised immigration advocates and angered Mr Trump. Under the Supreme Court action and Mr Grimm's orders, the Department of Homeland Security and Citizenship and Immigration Services must accept new applications and return to the Obama-era guidance that forbids the government from sharing information about DACA applicants with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

2. good god!! Trump ignores a SC decision-and they give him a month to explain.



...............The hearing on Friday in US District Court in Maryland was part of the fallout from the Supreme Court's decision in June, which surprised immigration advocates and angered Mr Trump. Under the Supreme Court action and Mr Grimm's orders, the Department of Homeland Security and Citizenship and Immigration Services must accept new applications and return to the Obama-era guidance that forbids the government from sharing information about DACA applicants with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Over the past month, there has been mounting public pressure for the Trump administration to be made to comply with the latest court directives.

“Your Administration's refusal to carry out the court's directive is an illegal usurpation of authority in violation of the separation of powers,” said a 24 July letter to Mr Trump written by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-New York, and Representative Zoe Lofgren, D-California, the chair of the judiciary subcommittee on immigration and citizenship.
