Trump to ‘limit the scope’ of DACA, review winding down immigration policy

In a memorandum released on Tuesday, the DHS also said it would reduce renewal intervals for current DACA migrants from two years to just one and noted that it would perform a comprehensive review of the program.

The memo reads that the administration will not process any new DACA applications, and with respect to the recipients already in the program, would make it so they have to renew their application every year, and not every two, as now set. He said he would continue to bar new applications.

A federal judge blocked the Trump administration on Wednesday from moving forward with plans to deny green cards or permanent citizenship to immigrants who have received Medicaid, food stamps or housing vouchers, even on a limited basis - a wealth test that several states, led by NY, sued over during the coronavirus pandemic.

Immigration crackdown advocates and some legal scholars had urged the Trump administration to revoke the memo when it came into office in 2017, but that didn't happen. And all applications for advanced parole "will be rejected absent extraordinary circumstances". Polls show that a majority of the American public does not want them deported.

Critics view Trump's call for a "review" and halt to new applicants as a way to subvert the high court's ruling while the White House assesses how best to further undermine the Obama-era program.

Some 700,000 people in America have benefited from the Daca programme, majority of Latin American origin.

Trump Floats Delaying the 2020 Elections - Citing Inaccurate Claims on Voter Fraud
Any change to those laws will require a vote by the House of Representatives now controlled by Democratic majority. The statement came after Trump suggested delaying the 2020 election , falsely claiming mail-in voting fraud.

Trump signaled after the Supreme Court defeat that he would again attempt to terminate the DACA program.

It said DACA was legal as long as it wasn't an automatic grant of authority, and Homeland Security officers could decide each case individually. On July 10, after the court's decision, he offered a confusing set of remarks about his intentions.

"I'm going do a big executive order, I have the power to do it as president and I'm going to make DACA a part of it", Trump said in an interview with Telemundo anchor Jose Diaz-Balart. According to the president, the planned immigration bill will be based on a merit system.

The DACA program, which was established in 2012 under former president Obama, provides protection against deportation and work authorization to certain young undocumented immigrants brought to the children by their parents. The program protects recipients from deportation and allows them to work here legally.

Jorge De La Fuente, attorney for LUPE, said it was prepared to file lawsuits if USCIS denied new applications.

The administration is getting around the court order by issuing a new memo that supersedes all previous DACA memos, the administration official said Tuesday. DACA was put in place by former President Barack Obama and now, some 644,000 immigrants are enrolled. Applicants must have lived in the United States for several years, attended school, and pass a background check, among other requirements.
