Inland Empire – Immigrant Youth Collective v. Nielsen Decision
The ACLU and the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California have won a class action lawsuit on behalf of a nationwide class of young immigrants challenging the Trump administration’s unlawful revocations of their Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status.
A federal judge ruled in favor of three young immigrants and a nationwide class of others like them who have had their DACA status unlawfully revoked by the Trump administration. The court certified a nationwide class and issued a nationwide injunction blocking the administration from terminating class members’ DACA grants and work permits without notice, an explanation, and an opportunity to respond. The court also reinstated the DACA grants and work permits of class members who have already had them unlawfully revoked by the government.
