The Trump administration announced this week that it will undertake a substantive legal and policy review of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and allow those whose protections would expire during the review to renew for one year. But it will not accept new applications despite a court directive to do so, Knoxnews reports.
