Batalla Vidal v. Wolf: On November 14, 2020, a federal district court judge in Brooklyn, NY, concluded that the Wolf memorandum issued July 28, 2020, the provisions of which restricted the availability of DACA, was issued without legal authority because Chad Wolf was not lawfully serving as the acting secretary of Homeland Security. The judge also certified a nationwide class in the case. The court appointed the National Immigration Law Center, the Jerome N. Frank Legal Services Organization at Yale Law School, and Make the Road New York as attorneys for the class. Please read the court’s order here.
You are automatically a member of the certified class if you are or will be DACA-eligible, and have not filed your own lawsuit challenging the Wolf memo. You are also automatically a member of the certified subclass if you have not filed your own lawsuit challenging the Wolf memo, and had an application for DACA - whether initial or renewal - pending with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) on any date between June 30 and July 28, 2020, and it was not adjudicated according to the original 2012 DACA memorandum.
