On Wednesday, October 5th, USCIS Director Ur M. Jaddou made a statement on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). She stated, “While today’s decision is deeply disappointing, it does not change current USCIS operations. Consistent with the court’s order, USCIS will continue to accept and process DACA renewal requests and continue to accept but not process initial DACA requests. We remain committed to preserve and fortify DACA within our authority, but ultimately Congress must act to provide permanent protections to DACA recipients and their families.”
On the same day as this statement, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit issued a decision on DACA policy. The court partially affirmed the district court’s July 2021 decision declaring the 2012 DACA policy unlawful.
