Reinstatement of DACA by Federal Court

A young DACA recipient who was arrested for providing a false address to authorities brought suit against the Dept of Homeland Security which granted a preliminary injunction against the federal government and ordered USCIS to reconsider its termination of her work authorization and deferral od deportation. Our immigration attorneys have recently met with the family of a recent DACA recipient who was detained under similar circumstances, despite not being convicted of any charges.

Her conviction for giving a false name was deferred by the criminal court and once she had completed the diversion program her conviction was dismissed. Her lawyers took this to the U.S. District Court seeking an injunction to protect her from deportation and allow her DACA petition to be re-examined by USCIS.

Since the conviction was dismissed her attorneys argued to the federal court that she was eligible for the DACA program. The Court agreed.
