WASHINGTON — A judge today blocked new applications to the DACA program and placed the future of the program in jeopardy.

Omar Jadwat, director of the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, had the following reaction:

“This ruling is wrong and is subject to appeal. But Dreamers’ futures shouldn’t be in the hands of the courts. It is absolutely urgent that Congress acts now through the budget reconciliation process to provide Dreamers and other undocumented members of our communities with reliable status and a pathway to citizenship.”
