DACA continues; DAPA rescinded

The Department of Homeland Security rescinded Former President Obama’s November 20, 2014 memorandum creating Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (“DAPA”) citing “no credible path forward to litigate the currently enjoined policy.” While rescission of the program is not unexpected, I am slightly surprised at the chosen language for their reasoning.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals continues without change for the moment, and Poole Law Center’s DACA cases continue to be approved and successfully renewed.
