BREAKING: Federal judge fully restores Obama-era DACA program, directs DHS to begin accepting applicants

U.S. District Judge Nicholas G. Garaufis, who was appointed by Bill Clinton has fully restored the Obama-era DACA program that the Trump administration has attempted to end since 2017.

Garaufis has directed DHS to begin accepting applicants Monday.

The Trump administration can appeal to a federal appeals court or may take the case directly to the Supreme Court for temporary relief from the judge’s order.

Per Wikipedia, Garaufis was nominated by President Clinton on February 28, 2000, to a seat on the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York.
