Trump Administration Has Defied Supreme Court Order by Refusing to
Restore DACA and Taking Orders by Unlawfully Appointed DHS Secretary

NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Letitia James today scored another major victory for hundreds of thousands of Dreamers across the nation who are eligible for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and who were at risk of deportation by the Trump Administration. A federal court today issued an order granting Attorney General James’ request for partial summary judgment, ruling that Chad Wolf, the agency official who in July 2020 purported to shut down new DACA applications and cut back the length of DACA renewals, was not lawfully serving as Acting Secretary of Homeland Security at the time.
