As previously reported, in January 2018 the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California issued a nationwide injunction requiring the federal government to temporarily reinstate significant portions of the DACA program previously rescinded by the White House. As a result of that ruling, the Department of Homeland Security was required to continue processing petitions for DACA renewals. The Justice Department attempted to appeal the District Court’s decision straight to the U.S. Supreme Court, rather than proceeding through the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. The Supreme Court ruled today that it will not hear the appeal at this time. Instead, the case will continue to proceed before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Pending a final determination, the District Court order reinstating portions of the DACA program remains in effect.
