What now for California DACA recipients?

Federal Judge protects DACA (January 10, 2018)

Is DACA here to stay? 

A federal court in California issued a preliminary injunction Tuesday over the Obama-era program, which gives almost 800,000 immigrants temporary protection status.

This means existing DACA recipients can renew their status -- as long as the lawsuit remains in limbo.

But what's next for the program?

A U.S. Supreme Court ruling is possible, according to University of California, Davis Law School Dean Kevin Johnson. 

"I do think this is a case the Supreme Court is likely to end up reviewing," said Johnson. "The case is far from over."
