District Court ruling on Deferred Action for Parents of Americans & Lawful Permanent Residents & Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. A Preliminary Injuction was issued delaying the February 18th start to the programs that would give 4 million immigrants, parents of American citizens, work permits and three-year deferred deportation DAPA and also expand the original DACA program.
The Department of Justice will appeal the injunction. Keep in mind the Court’s order does not in any way affect existing DACA. You may still request the initial grant of DACA or renewal pursuant to original guidelines.
