DACA Lawsuit to Advance to Supreme Court

Now that President Trump has filled the 9th seat on the Supreme Court, the U.S. Justice Dept through its Attorney General, Jeff Sessions is requesting the Supreme Court rule on Deferred Action for Early Childhood Arrivals (DACA) even if the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has not ruled on whether President Trump’s Order ending DACA is within his executive powers to do. Apparently, the 9th Circuit has until October 31, 2018 in order to make a decision before the case may be taken up by the Supreme Court. Given that the future of DACA is uncertain our Immigration Attorneys have met with current and prospective clients in order to find other options including adjustment of status through a U.S. citizen spouse, asylum, I-601A waivers, and other options.

Apparently, Attorney General Sessions believes the Supreme Court, arguably more conservative than the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals which is probably the more liberal court will either overturn the 9th Circuit if it rules against the President.

We recommend refiling for DACA benefits at least 120 days prior to the expiration of DACA. However, in some cases, we have heard of DACA applicants successfully filing for DACA renewals before the 120 day period.
