Resumption order for DACA applications applauded

Advocates for Hispanic workers and their families in Door and Kewaunee Counties are pleased with a federal judge's order to resume accepting applications for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.  The DACA program protects those brought to the U.S. as children by undocumented immigrants.  The program was put on hold by the Trump Administration in July 2017.  Imelda Delchambre, with the Hispanic Resource Center of Door and Kewaunee Counties, says the decision will help put many area families' minds at ease.

The federal judge's order requires the Department of Human Services to publish notices on websites that first time and renewal DACA applications are being accepted.
