Late last year, the Trump Administration announced that it would rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (“DACA”) program, implementing a plan to wind down the DACA program over six months.  On January 9, 2018, Judge William Alsup of the U.S. District Court for Northern California issued an injunction on this decision, ordering the Trump Administration to maintain the DACA program, with few exceptions.  This injunction has since been challenged by the U.S. Department of Justice. A timeline of this ongoing matter is summarized below.
