The Court's decision means that, for now, the current beneficiaries of the program will continue to be protected so as not to be deported, they may renew work permits and driver's licenses.

"Arbitrary, capricious" is Trump's decision, the Court concluded, adding that he was not attached to the law.

The request for review of the program to the Supreme Court of Justice was at the request of the Department of Homeland Security and the resolution issued only implies that the program remains in force. However, new applications cannot be supported.

Desire to continue

Activists from numerous organizations and beneficiaries of this programs have been mobilizing towards Washington to express their support for this program.

A cheerful and bustling group of high school students in Washington arrived Friday at the United States Supreme Court to express their support for the DACA immigration program for young "dreamers."

"We are more than papers", "We are with the 'dreamers'" was read on the posters that were raised by these young people mobilized by the United we Dream network, and that included among their slogans an endorsement of the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) ) and against the separation of immigrant families.

"We are using the voices of young people to tell the Supreme Court that DACA is staying," Luz Chavez, a 22-year-old girl born in Bolivia who was part of the group of protesters, told Efe.

Arriving in the country with only four years from La Paz, Luz admitted that he practically does not know Bolivia and that the United States is the only place he identifies as his.

And if you run out of this benefit, created in 2012, your life would change. "I will not have a way to work, I will not have a way of being safe, because they can deport me if something happens," he said with a certain gesture of concern.

Meanwhile, Walter Barrientos, a member of United we Dream, explained that the march in Washington brought together dozens of young people and stressed that the activity was replicated in Oklahoma, Arizona and California.
