Trump Administration Says It Will Reject New DACA Applications

The White House announced that it will take steps to wind down legal protections for hundreds of thousands of immigrants brought into the country as children, often called "Dreamers," while it conducts a legal review after the Supreme Court rejected President Donald Trump's plan to end the program known as DACA.

A senior administration official said that despite the Supreme Court ruling, the White House still viewed the program, formally called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, as illegal and that the court ruling left room for it to pursue other ways to end the program. The Trump administration would "limit the scope" of DACA while the administration reviews its legality, the official said.

The administration announced that while the program is under review, it will reject initial requests and application fees for new filings, consider all applications for renewal on a case-by-case basis but limit renewals to one year rather than two, and reject all applications for advance parole unless there are "extraordinary circumstances."
