President Donald Trump has received a major setback by a federal court over the DACA program for migrant children arriving in the US without documentation. The court overturned the Trump administration’s decision in which the Obama-era program was scrapped. The court ordered the Obama-era ruling to be fully restored. These children are called ‘Dreamers’ in the country.
This decision will help a large number of Indian expatriates. Judge Nicholas Gairaufis of the New York-based Eastern District directed the Ministry of Home Security (DHS) to extend the program for children (now adults) who have DACA facilities to extend the program by two years so that renewal action can be taken.
The court also said that from Monday, the department should also accept applications from applicants who are applying for the first time. Let us tell you that the Trump administration in 2017 tried to eliminate the facilities available under DACA, which was stopped by the US Supreme Court in June. Now the court has said that for the first time after September 2017, new applicants who were not eligible for the first DACA program can also apply for it.
These migrant children (Dreamers) had left their country and came to America without any valid documents due to the miseries in their countries. A law allowing them to remain in the country was brought under the tenure of DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) Barack Obama, who illegally protected migrant children from the United States from deportation and employed with a work permit when they were adults.

According to a 2019 report by South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT), there are 6,30,000 Indians in the United States with a 72% increase since 2010 without documentation. The report states that only 13% of the total 20,000 Indians eligible for DACA applied for the program. In this way, the new decision will enable millions of Indians to be entitled to DACA.
The Trump administration now has two options. He can now appeal against this decision in the federal appellate court or go to the Supreme Court to stop the implementation of the new order of the judge. There are 6.4 million immigrants enrolled in the DACA program in the US so far.
