This morning the Supreme Court is meeting again on whether or not to agree to the Trump Admin’s request to take up #DACA repeal this term. Cross your fingers they want no involvement. Will update as soon as I know anything. Could come this afternoon, Monday or Tuesday.
Update: still waiting here. There are some media reports that there wasn't an order here today, but we think that might have been a little premature. Hoping to hear concretely soon.
No orders today. Come back 9:30am on Tuesday. Everyday that goes by is another day that DACA recipients can renew. So take today as a victory! #ProtectDreamers

February 2018. Looking for inspiration and wisdom, I went to see Dan Rather, whose book is a must read for resisters. @DanRather spoke eloquently about what he learned from decades of reporting, that we are mighty together, that our core values hold and that it IS up to US. 3/24

So what happened today is essentially the administration's follow through on their original threat letter to the 9th Circuit. During that period of time the 9th Circuit never ruled. What was a bit different that happened today that wasn't mentioned in their letter is that 3/

DACA UPDATE: DC district court partially stayed a previous order to fully reinstate #DACA. This means that USCIS will not accept first time applications or advance parole for now. DACA renewals are still being accepted. đź“Ł 1/

6 years ago, the government began accepting the first applications for the #DACA program, changing the lives of 800,000 young immigrants who could now receive temporary protection from deportation, study, and legally work in the only country they have ever known. #ProtectDreamers
I was there when #Dreamers came to Navy Pier by the thousands to apply for #DACA. They just wanted the chance be a part of America’s future. nytimes.com/2012/08/16/us/…
