AG Sessions Announces DACA Is Being Rescinded

Sep 5, 2017 | Press | 0 comments

This morning, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security will begin to wind down the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. No new initial applications or related applications filed after today will be processed. However, no current beneficiaries will be affected before March 5 of next year.
In making the announcement, Sessions cited the Trump Administration’s belief that DACA was unconstitutional  and that engaging in a legal battle to preserve it would be futile. Sessions also called on Congress to act if it wished to preserve DACA, echoing President Trump’s earlier Tweet, and pushed for adoption of the RAISE Act. Many details of the wind down remain unknown at this time.
