Re-starting the DACA program in full will mean prioritizing illegal immigrant “Dreamers” over others — guest-workers and legal immigrants — who are already waiting in line, the government told a court this week.
The Trump administration is fighting to try to head off a judge’s order that the entire Obama-era deportation amnesty for Dreamers be put back into place.
In new court papers filed late Tuesday U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services said if it’s forced to re-start the program completely it will mean slowing down approval for high-skilled guest workers and relatives seeking to join their American citizen family members here in the U.S.
USCIS also predicted a flood of 50,000 new applications right at the start from people who would have applied over the last year, but were blocked by President Trump’s decision to phase out the DACA program.
Several other judges have ordered the DACA program kept in place for the 700,000 or so Dreamers who had already been approved, but a judge in Washington, D.C., recently ordered that the program be reopened even for illegal immigrants who’d never qualified before. His order would also reopen a pathway to citizenship for them — something the Obama administration had said wouldn’t happen when it created the program in 2012.
