(NewsReady.com) – In June, the Supreme Court of the US (SCOTUS) ruled President Trump’s administration didn’t follow the proper procedure when ending the DACA program. As a result, the immigration program was left in place. This week, the executive branch made a decision about what to do about the problem.
On July 28, acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf announced the agency would not be accepting new DACA applicants. Additionally, renewals will be for one year instead of two. The Trump administration official explained the department is weighing what to do with the program, including “whether to fully rescind” it.

What will ultimately happen with DACA in the future is still up in the air.
The president has indicated he wants to provide a pathway to citizenship for DACA recipients. However, he’s repeatedly said Congress should do its job and pass a bill to address the issue. Wolf repeated that stance this week, saying the administration believes lawmakers “should act on this matter.”
